Developing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for Organisational Excellence

Wouldn’t You Like to Know How Best Your Organisation and Yourself Can Measure Up?



“If You Don’t Measure It, You Can’t Improve It.”


KPIs, Key Performance Indicators – a term that is widely used, but little understood, frequently under-used and often misused.

Businesses and organizations are mired in the classical financial indicators, which are necessary, but grossly insufficient for the purpose, for the simple reason that those indicators have two major weaknesses - they are very much lagging and worse, they have zero diagnostic capability. When these indicators head south, it is way too late to figure out the root cause. They give no clues whatsoever, as to what might have gone awry.
This two-day programme is specially designed to provide the fundamentals on how to design indicators which:

- Measure what matter to your customers;
- And which therefore matter to the success of your organization;
- Are aligned top-down throughout the entire organization.

What can be more important than the above?
