Therefore metallurgical companies are looking for new solutions which help to introduce, constant monitor and control of regularly updated corporate strategy.This paper proposes a comprehensive method of monitoring strategy realization through a well-designed set of Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s). This solution is dedicated to metallurgical enterprises and pays particular attention to an overall assessment of the company, its strategy and future plans that help build competitive advantage. A concept of the main assumptions of the Performance Management (PM), the Balanced Scorecard (BSC) and a combination of strategic management with the implementation of operational management is presented.The proposed solution tries to solve important problems related to the management of metallurgical enterprises. A significant importance is to quickly realize main strategic goals. The well-designed strategy reduces the risk associated with metallurgical activity. The proposed KPI’s system helps to monitor and control strategy realization in metallurgical companies what allows time of strategy implementation in companies to be considerably shortened and its effectiveness to be increased.
