Key Performance Indicators – developing, implementing, and using winning KPIs.
Key performance indicators (KPIs), while used commonly around the world, have never until now been clearly defined. Management personnel have identified measures as KPIs though these measures have never been KPIs. The lack of understanding of performance measures has led most monitoring and reporting of measures to fail. The casualty has often been the balanced scorecard, a brilliant tool that can only work if the appropriate measures are in it. Fully revised and updated, Key Performance Indicators: Developing, Implementing, and Using Winning KPIs, Second Edition represents a significant shift in the way KPIs are developed and used, with an abundance of implementation tools.
Key Performance Indicators, is filled with templates, questionnaires, workshop agendas, draft memo’s and checklists to get the implementation started and take you across the line.
