Measuring and monitoring business performance is critical, but focusing on the wrong key performance indicators can be detrimental. So can be poorly structured KPIs, or KPIs that are too difficult, costly to obtain, or to monitor on a regular basis.
So what makes graduation performance indicators “key” and how should a college owner, executive or manager select them? There are six factors that separate effective, value creating KPIs from detrimental, value diminishing KPIs. The right KPIs for your business should follow these KPI best practices:
- Aligned - Make sure the KPIs your are choosing align with the strategic goals and objectives of your organization.
- Attainable - The KPIs you choose to measure should have data that can be easily obtained.
- Acute - KPIs should keep everyone on the same page and moving in the same direction.
- Accurate - The data flowing into the KPI should be reliable and accurate.
