Based on the description of Coyote Community College and its environment, what specific types of measures should the college include in each of the following perspectives of the balanced scorecard? How would these measures be implemented?
Internal process perspective
Innovation and resource perspective
This week’s discussion question is, “How would you respond to a manager who said, ‘Employees cannot be motivated with money’?” (Provide some alternative means to motivate employees by not using fiscal resources. Describe a variety of ways to improve employee performance utilizing feedback, rewards, and positive reinforcement.)
The initial response to the discussion questions must be 250-350 words in length. You are expected to respond to at least two of your peers’ postings per discussion thread. I will ask follow-up questions or an extension of the dialogue. I expect you to provide a response to me; these follow-up questions from me do not count as your peer response requirement. Responses must be substantive to promote continued learning. These responses cannot be a simple one or two sentences or a “Good, bad, or I agree” posting; you must make a more in-depth reply. You should also make an effort to find a source to support your follow-up response. The intent is to post peer responses earlier in the week so that dialogue occurs and you maximize the learning.

The paper is not a literature review and should not be a simple listing of each article. You must use articles from peer-reviewed journals; do not use trade magazines, books, newspapers, and similar.

Why did you select the articles?

Do you agree/disagree with the author’s hypotheses?
Any assumptions within the articles?
Any additional data you find relevant to the topic
