Basic Ideas about designing KPIs<br />Who should design your indicators?<br />You should involve at least two people: <br />a top manager, who understands the company’s strategy and goals; <br />and a line-level manager, who knows what can and should be done to achieve those goals.<br />Do you have good indicators?<br />There are two rules to remember. <br />Your indicators should not repeat each other, <br />but taken together, they should describe 90% of your company or business unit.<br />
Basic Ideas about designing KPIs<br />Are your indicators easy to measure?<br />Your indicators should be easy to understand and measure, or your employees will not use them. <br />So first, try measuring each indicator yourself. Then, ask a colleague for an independent opinion. <br />If your colleague needs a significant amount of time to understand the indicator, then it is not a good indicator. <br />Either remove it from your scorecard, or clarify its description.<br />How many indicators?<br />Keep the number of indicators low. <br />Ideally, you should have three or four indicators in each category. <br />If you have more, you are overloading your scorecard. <br />Either add sub-categories, or create a Cascading Balanced Scorecard.<br />
