What is KPI Development?
Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are a type of business metrics a company uses to “gauge its performance over time.” For example, if your business is making a profit, it’s a clear indicator of its performance. However, to understand why your company is making that profit, you’ll need to identify KPIs. As such, these will reflect production, sales, marketing, and all other factors that can affect your company’s profit.
KPIs differ between industries. However, all of them work to increase the profit margin of your business. Moreover, the majority of the brands’ metrics are related to reducing costs, improving revenues, or increasing customer satisfaction.
Helpful tips for listing your KPIs
It’s not an easy task to create a high-quality list of business metrics. As a result, functional experts work together with managers to determine the right set of KPIs and their role. To help you out, we’ve decided to list a few tips to use when you identify the key metrics and KPIs for your company.
Look for things you can change
There’s no point for you to measure different factors unless you can learn and manage the driver behind the metric. Moreover, you should be able to change the results and the outcome of your KPIs. Look for the metrics that you can improve.
Diversify your KPIs
Make sure to diversify your metrics and include KPIs from many categories. For example, you can list financial and non-financial factors. However, there are a few KPIs that are must-haves in any report, such as team and HR performance, economic, and growth metrics.
Align your KPIs with your business strategy
First, identify your business objectives. Secondly, align your business metrics with your plan. The goals of your business strategy can be achieved through many efforts, so your metrics will track the efficiency and outcome of your initiatives.
Simplify your metrics
Do your homework and write as detailed of a report as possible. However, we all know that business jargon can get complicated. Write down your parameters in such a way that every report user and every member of your team can understand what they mean. Be clear and concise.
