Balanced Scorecard is a performance management tool that enables efficient business management. Information like cause-and-effect relations of the performance indicators improves the approach further. That is the reason why we consider Balanced Scorecards as a knowledge system. Topic Maps are a standard to represent knowledge in a digital way and they concentrate on the findability of information. We propose a standard called Scorecard Maps that brings both systems together. The objects of a Scorecard Map are elaborated from the Balanced Scorecard approach. We realise a generality by not restricting the objects and by implementing several calculus for performance indicators. The Scorecard Map can deal with a complete company although only a user specific view will be given. This means that only a Scorecard Map model is needed for the complete company.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
