For years many organizations have used what they thought were KPIs but the measures have not had the impact management and the Board were seeking. KPIs are mislabelled and misused in many organizations. With over 20 KPIs organizations lack focus, lack alignment and under achieve. In fact, there are normally less than 10 true KPIs in an organization and these are measured and reported 24/7, daily, or at the outside weekly.
This toolkit for small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with less than 100 FTEs covers the latest thinking on KPIs. David believes that there are four types of performance measures and choosing the right mix is crucial for effective measurement and control.
This PDF whitepaper has been updated with David Parmenter latest work connected to his 4th edition of his bestselling KPI book. The e-templates are emailed with the PDF whitepaper. This toolkit will show you how to choose the right KPIs and will be useful for organisations regardless as to whether they have a balanced scorecard or not.
