Best practice measurement and reporting

It is likely that your measures and reports are too slow, detailed and lack performance insights. Most managers don’t know where they are until two weeks after each month end. You need to raise your game and provide your partners with fast, frequent and relevant information. This workshop will teach you how to:

  • design team-based scorecards and align measures and rewards
  • turn dumb KPIs into intelligent analytics
  • design ‘reports on a page’ and use trends
  • use peer comparisons (including league tables and open peer reviews) to drive continuous improvement
  • open up the information system and communicate results more effectively.

Case examples are drawn from a wide range of organisations.
