Course Learning Outcomes

Many organizations fail to achieve their potential because they lack clarity regarding the more important things to do. These organizations have not distinguished their critical success factors (CSFs) from the myriad known success factors. This lack of clarity means that often staff members will schedule their work based on their team’s priorities rather than the priorities of the organization. The goal of this Advanced Key Performance Indicators™ (aKPIs™) is to provide tensive theories and best practices on the KPIs in strategic performance management for all levels of organizations to boost the peak performance for sustainable development and growth.

  • The dark side of performance measures and why over half of the measures may be destroying organizational values.
  • The three major benefits of ascertaining an organization’s critical success factors and the associated performance measures.
  • The importance of measuring at the top of the cliff, and the examples of measures that are often confused as KPIs and dysfunctional measures that, if used, will damage an organization.
  • Performance with KPIs should be seen as a requirement, a “ticket to the game” and not worthy of additional reward.
  • The steps CEOs need to take to get performance measurement to work in their organizations (in-house); also, the guidelines as to the chapters the Board, CEO, KPI team, and team coordinators should read.
