Transformational and Joyful Leadership define vision as its core components while many other theories acknowledge the importance of a vision. Charismatic leaders may choose to use their charisma to lead followers towards a more positive vision for the future (Martin Luther King or Mahatma Gandhi). Articulation of a vision is affected by limbic system activity (Morse,2006) and can be traced on a neurological level. Thus, having a vision is influential socially, psychologically and biologically. Providing inspiration starts with a clear vision for a better future. A joyful leader in an organization will, as a rule, develop the whole system based on an agreed vision. Leading through vision together with setting out values is emotionally appealing and motivating but it is not enough in a business environment.

People are motivated by a clear understanding of what they need to do to accomplish the vision. Each person will learn how to contribute meaningfully toward team goals ensuring personal and team growth in a win-win situation. It is not a surprise that 90% of the fastest growing US companies are run by their founders, with vision and skills to change it during organizational transitions. Circling through the system presented in the kaizen manner during change ensures the growth and vitality of the organization.

Balanced Scorecard (BSC) was originally developed by Dr. Robert Kaplan of Harvard University and Dr. David Norton (1992) as a framework for measuring organizational performance using a more BALANCED set of performance measures. They revolutionized conventional thinking about performance metrics based on the idea “What you measure is what you get.” Its objective is to translate an organization’s mission and vision into operational actions as a model of strategic planning.
