Management Review and Understanding Key Performance Indicators (KPI) and Key Results Area (KRA)

The performance of organizations is among the top agendas in any management, and quite rightly so. Many organizations however are measuring the “wrong square peg in a round hole”, as demonstrated by them being like busy bees without collecting any honey. And since you cannot hope to manage what you cannot measure properly, it is no wonder many are not performing up to expectations. You may end up praising the bad and reprimanding the good.
