11 What is a Key Performance Indicator (KPI)?
12 What is a Key Performance Indicator (KPI)? Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) help organizations understand how well they are performing in relation to their strategic goals and objectives. In the broadest sense, a KPI can be defined as providing the most important performance information that enables organizations or their stakeholders to understand whether the organization is on track or not.
13 What is a Key Performance Indicator (KPI)?
14 Measuring what matters the most Before KPIs can be identified, the following requirements must be met: A predefined organizational process. Clear business objectives for the process. Quantitative and qualitative measurements. An active approach to finding and remedying enterprise variances.
15 Example For example, when you go to your doctor he might measure blood pressure, cholesterol levels, heart rate and your body mass index as key indicators of your health. With KPIs we are trying to do the same in our organizations
16 Why Use KPIs? KPIs serve to reduce the complex nature of organizational performance to a small number of key indicators in order to make performance more understandable and digestible for us. This is the same approach we use in our daily lives.
17 Why Use KPIs? KPIs are above all else, a set of indicators to measure data against, a sortof enterprise success gauge. Ultimately, they help an organization assess progress toward declared goals.
18 Why do we measure performance? The reason why we measure performance in organizations is often reduced to simple homilies, such as you can t manage anything unless you measure it or what gets measured gets done. The three main reasons for measuring performance are : To learn and improve To report externally and demonstrate compliance To control and monitor people & IT Systems
19 KPI in the real life!!
21 What Are Metrics? When we use the term metric we are referring to a direct numerical measure that represents a piece of business data in the relationship of one or more dimensions.
22 What Are Metrics? Metrics are not the KPIs themselves; rather they are needed in order to determine if our KPIs have been satisfied. The KPI that might use the above metric could be "% reduction in CIs in error each month" you need the number actually in error in order to determine the % of reduction over the previous month's # of CIs in error.

45 From Measures to decision
46 Conclusions Metrics need not be viewed as an arcane dark art. Instead, the use of KPIs should be grounded in measuring the progress towards, and protection of, the objective(s) of a process. If the objective is clearly understood then the identification of metrics and how they should be constructed become much more apparent. In addition, it helps to bear in mind where the processes are at in terms of adoption in the organization and the behavior that the metric may drive. Understand what stakeholders need and tailor metrics and reports accordingly. It is far better to start focused and evolve KPIs and reporting to stay relevant and truly help stakeholders with their management decisions. Hopefully this document has given you some ideas to discuss in your teams and improve the value that metrics bring
