There for the study aimed to investigate whether there is any relationship between the internal business process and financial perspective of balanced scorecard on the performance of SMEs in Ilorin; to examine the relationship between the innovation and customer perspective of balanced scorecard on the performance of SMEs in Ilorin and to assess the effect of non-adoption of balanced scorecard by small and medium scale enterprises in Ilorin. The descriptive survey research design was used, model was specified and Simple random sampling was used in determining the sample size. 100 copies of questionnaires were distributed to management team of the sampled SMEs (10 each to every selected SME), out of which 91 were duly completed and returned. Data was presented by the use of frequency and percentage tables. Hypotheses were tested using regressions analysis and correlation and findings from the study revealed that financial perspective emphasize the ability to deliver maximum value to the customer at minimum cost and this sustained stakeholder value also high number of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises uses performance measures & indicators similar to those typically included within a balanced scorecard model. It was concluded that there is significance relationship between the innovation and customer’s perspective of balanced scorecard on the performance of SMEs in Ilorin and there is also a significance relationship between the internal business process and financial perspective of balanced scorecard on the performance of SMEs in Ilorin. It was recommended that the performance measures & indicators similar to those typically included within a balanced scorecard model can also be used to measure some or all of the four perspectives of balanced scorecard furthermore, there should be an awareness to management/owners of Small and Medium Scale Enterprises on usefulness in the adoption of balanced scorecard techniques.
