A way to address these challenges is to build a sound framework to measure KPIs, starting from the moment they are selected, until results collected, and centralized performance reports.

KPI and performance measurement development is a discipline that involves articulating what an organization is trying to accomplish and then identifying the most meaningful and useful indicators of success.

Performance measures, or KPIs, are a crucial part of any strategic management system, as they are critical to assessing the effectiveness of strategy implementation.

Meaningful and robust KPIs provide insight into whether strategies are working, whether programs, projects, and services are on schedule, on a budget, and delivered effectively.

KPIs focus employees’ attention on what matters most to success and allow for measurement of accomplishments.
