PuMP Blueprint Online – Getting Started

How to Get Started in the PMBO

You’re successfully registered in the online program to learn the practical PuMP® Blueprint – at your own pace, in your own place.

Thanks for joining the PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint Online Program!

The PuMP® Performance Measure Blueprint Online Program is going to give you all the practical and engaging learning as the live workshop, but with the fantastic convenience of learning in your own home or office, and in small bite-sized steps so it’s easier for you to implement as you learn!

Expect to have fun, to learn heaps, and to make a huge difference in your company or organisation along the way.

Performance measurement is at the heart of high performance, and you’re one of the performance leaders the world so very much needs. Can you imagine how different our world would be if all our organisations measured the right things, and let those measures guide their decisions and actions?

What to have on hand while you learn

The Performance Measure Blueprint is very practical and interactive, so you will get more value from it if you have on hand a few things to refer to and to work on:

  1. Your organisation’s or team’s strategic or operational or business plan (or whatever you call it) – where you have written your goals, objectives and targets for the coming year(s).
  2. Your existing performance measures or KPIs – either a list of them, their definitions, or graphs or tables of their current and historic results.
  3. Your current performance report – the document you use to report progress against your goals, objectives and initiatives.
