Strategies for Developing A Successful Performance Management System Through Key Performance Indicators

Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a very important management tool to corporate managers. It is important that the KPIs are formulated and implemented well. If not, they are better not done than done. Many organizations rush into establishing KPIs in a hurry to match competition and to show they are measurement focused. If they do it without aligning the KPIs to their strategy and without thoroughly evaluating and choosing the right KPIs, the exercise will not be fruitful. Sooner or later the employees will reject the KPIs as useless measures. It helps to set clear expectations of the management and direct the focus of every employee to put their effort to achieve what the management expects.
