This interview with learning expert, Adam Voigt, is a collaboration where we both use the PuMP Measurability Tests technique and Measure Design technique to demonstrate a practical approach for measuring school effectiveness.
Finding the right KPIs to measure policy advice is a big challenge. But it's not because policy is immeasurable. It's because we don't define policy success clearly enough. (more…)
One of the reasons why we can't find meaningful performance measures for our goals has to do with whether the goals are about actions or results. Action-oriented goals aren't true goals, since goals should be about making a difference, not just doing stuff. ...
Most organisations have lame corporate KPIs. They don't align to strategy, give evidence of impact, or offer actionable feedback. If they can't do these things, they can't really be called corporate KPIs!
Meaningful KPIs are quantifiable, able to be monitored over time, and are direct evidence of the goals they measure. This practical study of 50 organisations reveals just how many organisations do (or don't!) have KPIs that are meaningful.
Strategy execution more often than not feels like work, rather than true execution. Sometimes it feels like rework, when we keep redesigning it. Other times it feels like guesswork, implementing without really knowing if it’s working. And then there are times when it’s just plain hard work to get anything to happen. What we want is smooth execution to take the place of the work.
Do you believe that strategy is about projects and initiatives, so you don't need to measure your goals? Do you monitor your actions, because if they're completed, that means your goals are achieved? Do you rely on Staff Turnover Rate to assess how engaged your workforce is? If so, you're wasting your goals!
