For appraising performance of the enterprises, financial indicators focused conventional performance appraisal techniques, have been commonly used. However, the performance appraisals dealing with only financial indicators are not considered adequate to evaluate the performance of enterprises, currently. Recognizing the weak points of the financial indicator focused performance appraisals, researchers have started to study multi-dimensioned performance approaches.

A broad range of performance measures and business goals can be incorporated in the scorecard. The balanced scorecard is used extensively in business, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations worldwide, to align business activities to the vision and strategy of the organization, improve internal and external communications, and monitor organization performance in terms of strategic goals. In this study, the concept of performance will be explained, balanced scorecard method, which is one of the multi-dimensional performance measurement methods, will be discussed in detail. Finally, the application of balanced scorecard analysis will be realized in a medium-sized industrial enterprise. Keywords: Strategic management, performance measurement, balanced scorecard.
