KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS: AN INTRODUCTION TO WINNING KPIS
Most companies are working with the measures, many of which are incorrectly termed key performance indicators (KPIs). Successful companies develop KPIs with a focus on alignment, and growth. From his research, David Parmenter has found that very few organizations have identified their “winning KPIs” as he calls them.

THIS WEBINAR SERIES WILL HELP YOU IMPROVE:

  • the performance measures you choose
  • how you convey to staff what really is important – the CSFs
  • any balanced scorecard or KPI initiative.

WEBINAR #1 COVERS:

  • the difference between the four types of performance measures  (key result indicators, result indicators, performance indicators, and key performance indicators)
  • the seven characteristics of a winning KPI
  • why ever performance measure has a dark side  – an unintended consequence
  • the importance of not having too many measures — the 10/80/10 rule
  • reporting of performance using the thinking of Stephen Few.

 WEBINAR #2 COVERS:

  • why measures should be sourced from the organization’s critical success factors (CSFs)
  • how you find your organization’s CSFs
  • how to ascertain measures from a CSF
  • some useful CSFs and their related performance measures
  • the foundation stones that need to be put in place for a KPI project to work
  • the six stage process to implementing winning KPIs, from his best-selling KPI book
  • the eight stages of selling and leading change.
