CU Resources OnBalance offers strategic planning

 Permanent link
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (5/15/08)--Credit Union Resources announced the availability of OnBalance, a strategic planning solution for credit unions. OnBalance can function as a scorecard for users to monitor or review, or as a traditional program that lays out the steps of a credit union’s strategic plan. The scorecard traces a credit union’s business performances and goals in the financial, member, internal process and employee knowledge, and learning and growth categories. The scorecard can be tailored for each credit union’s needs, has five steps and can be revisited as many times as needed. OnBalance’s traditional strategic planning program lays out basic questions credit unions need to answer about their strategic plan and provides them with a blueprint to use. The “Pyramid of Purpose” builds a pyramid off of credit unions’ answers to “who?” and “why?” questions and helps credit unions see the reasoning behind their decisions. Credit Union Resources is a subsidiary of the Texas Credit Union League.
