Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)--you've probably heard the term and have an idea of what they are, but do you have a fail-proof method to measure key operational metrics? Based on who you are and what you want to accomplish, KPI's are your key to success--providing measurable goals that are used to gauge the success or failure of your operations. But without a means to easily measure and analyze your KPIs, you could actually be making decisions that are not helping you in the long run.
Choosing the right KPIs relies upon a good understanding of what is important to the organization. To that end, let’s take a look at the attributes of a good KPI. A KPI should be
1. Available and Measurable
2. Impact the Bottom Line
3. Relevant to Business Objectives
4. Useful to Improvement Efforts
The bottom line--you have to have clearly defined goals in place and KPIs to determine the success of those goals. But you also need a means to accurately measure your KPIs in order to instantly determine if steps are needed to change practices or personnel in order to achieve your goals.
