The balanced scorecard is a management system that enables organizations to clarify their vision and strategy and translate them into action. In four perspectives it can catch most important targets of the firm. Activity Based Costing (ABC) is a method which can estimate cost of process and activities. The analysis of processes and activities should lead to improvements that help to minimize costs and improve quality of the processes. All the improvements in the firm should contribute to the realization of the strategy. The article presents Balanced Scorecard for processes and activities. This method (ZKD) could be cascaded not on the functional structure of the organization but on processes and activities.
