A KPI Approach Self-AssessmentFebruary 12, 2018 by Stacey Barr
If you want good KPIs, your KPI approach has to be good. Use this KPI approach self-assessment to find out if yours is a good one.
A good KPI approach is not a list of measures to choose from. It’s not boxes to align them to. It’s not the opinion of self-proclaimed experts. And it’s not the demands of stakeholders who themselves have no proven mastery in good KPI development.
A good KPI approach has the 8 essential criteria that any good methodology will have:
- It’s parts are necessary
- The theory is well founded
- The theory is proven to work
- As a whole, the methodology is comprehensive
- The methodology is non-prescriptive
- In practice, the methodology is useful
- The methodology is practical to implement
- Each part of the methodology is transparent
How to do a self-assessment of your KPI approach:
Firstly, download this self-assessment template.
