Align With Strategy
Metrics must be customized to align with a company’s strategy and culture to measure its strategic goals. They should be clearly articulated and understood by everyone, have a strong supporting governance structure behind them, and have visible executive leadership commitment.
Metrics should focus on core financial and operational targets that make a difference by driving value. They should include both leading and lagging indicators and be reinforced with consequences for not achieving acceptable results.
For a successful business intelligence program, there must be individual accountability and ownership for the organization’s performance against its goals. Accompanying the consequences for non-performance should be an incentive system that rewards ambitious goals.
Can Be Easily Executed
Metrics should be supported by user-friendly interfaces, intuitive design, simple-to-use systems and processes that allow management to gain insight from the information. This includes providing information at the right time so that it can be acted upon.
Maintain Quality and Consistency
A business intelligence solution’s metrics should represent the single version of the truth. Balance flexibility with standardization and provide consistency and transparency for maximum success.
Create an ongoing process that evaluates the effectiveness of the metrics you use and gather feedback on how you might improve the initial metrics you establish. If you need to, take corrective action and adapt your metrics over time, especially as external developments occur that might affect how the metrics are applied.
