Systematic approaches can be employed to transform an organization's continuous improvement culture and business strategy into specific and quantifiable goals. Business metrics are the foundation of any performance monitoring strategy.


Traditionally, business metrics or key performance indicators (KPIs) have been defined as any type of measurement used to gauge some quantfiable component of a company's performance. Examples include EBITDA, sales versus plan, first pass quality, sales per employee and supplier quality. But do these KPIs engage the head, heart and hands of every employee in the organization? Not always. Discover how effective metrics are intended to not only measure the performance of the business, but they also inspire and reward the desired behaviors in the employees. Learn how performance feedback delivers facts, facts enable decisions, decisions solve problems, problem solutions modify processes and behaviors, and modified behaviors improve company performance.Attendees will hear about the critical elements and 'must know' concepts for developing and leading effective KPIs where employee engagement and behavior management are the key focuses.
