Gabrielle Dolan, business story telling expert, shares a practical framework with us for how to use storytelling to build more KPI buy-in. (more…)

If we try to introduce our colleagues to a better approach to measurement, but without the right preparation, it will backfire. (more…)
Buy-in is choice. Sign-off is obligation. Choice has loads more energy, that sustains itself longer, than does obligation. For buy-in to KPIs and performance measurement, people must be involved because they choose to, and not because they’re obliged to.
No KPI can ever give you perfect evidence of your goals. But too often we overestimate how good a KPI needs to be, to be "right". The truth is, KPIs aren't ever "right". You just want to be sure they are "not wrong".
This is a digest of all that I've written so far on making time to measure better. The irony is that if we don't make time for better measurement now, we'll have even less time for it in the future. In other words, all the reasons why we don't have time to measure are the very reasons why we need to.
I've been thinking about achievement lately, and why some people do it regularly, and others just struggle. Certainly in my own likelihood to achieve, I see a pattern. And I reckon I see a similar pattern when it comes to how likely my clients are to succeed with performance measurement.
