What to have with you
The Performance Measure Blueprint Workshop is very practical and interactive, so you will get more value from it if you have a few things with you, to refer to and to work on:
- We’ll be posting you a training workbook (including all the slides plus loads more tips and examples) and a case study. Make sure to have this with you!
- 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).
- Your existing performance measures or KPIs – either a list of them, their definitions, or graphs or tables of their current and historic results.
- Your current performance report – the document you use to report progress against your goals, objectives and initiatives.
The workshop program
We don’t provide you with a time schedule for the 5 half-days, because our presenters adjust the flow and timing based on each group’s specific needs. Suffice to say, the overall flow follows the 8 Steps of PuMP in order. The amount of time spent on each step, and the amount of practice and coaching, again is tailored to each specific group.
That said, here is the flow you’ll move through over the 5 half-days:
Performance measurement is a process, not an event.
We discuss the problems with performance measurement and how to solve them by thinking about performance measurement as a process.
STEP 1: Understanding Measurement’s Purpose
Fixing the focus firmly on continuous improvement as the purpose for measurement.
We start with the PuMP® Diagnostic to help your Measures Team understand what good measurement means, and how to do it properly to avoid the most common struggles and problems.
STEP 2: Mapping Measurable Results
Translating our strategy into clear, focused and measurable performance results.
We explore why it’s so hard to measure the right things, how to test if a strategy (i.e. your goals, objectives or priorities) is measurable enough and fix it using the PuMP® Measurability Tests, and how the PuMP® Results Mapping technique makes strategy easier to understand and measure.
STEP 3: Designing Meaningful Measures Choosing the most feasible and relevant measures that evidence our performance results.
We review the traditional approaches people take to selecting measures and why they fail, and then see how the PuMP® Measure Design technique produces measures that are meaningful, relevant, cost-effective and easy for people to buy-in to.
STEP 4: Building Buy-in to Measures
Getting ownership from our stakeholders, quickly, easily and engagingly.
There are some very specific reasons why people don’t buy in to performance measures which we will explore, and we’ll see how the PuMP® Measure Gallery technique can build buy-in and generate excitement for performance measurement.
STEP 5: Implementing Measures
Documenting in detail the data, analysis and reporting requirements for each of our measures.
We talk about the causes behind why so many measures are never brought to life (i.e. never get reported or used) and how the PuMP® Measure Definition technique is so useful for specifying exactly how each measure should be implemented.
STEP 6: Interpreting Signals from Measures
Focusing ourselves on gaps between as-is and should-be performance.
It’s so easy to misinterpret performance measure signals, and frighteningly, most people do. So we’ll follow the PuMP® Measure Interpretation technique to make interpretation of performance measures easier, valid and incredibly insightful.
STEP 7: Reporting Performance Measures
Creating useful and usable performance reports that inspire us to action.
We’ll look at why typical performance reports are next to useless, and discover how the PuMP® Report Design technique quickly and easily produces performance reports that answer the 3 questions every performance report should answer.
STEP 8: Reaching Performance Targets
Improving our business processes to move as-is performance toward should-be.
The role of performance measures is to improve performance more easily, quickly and economically. The PuMP® Using Measures technique shows how to use performance measures to get the highest leverage improvements.
Preparing for a successful PuMP® implementation.
We’ll close the 4th day of the workshop by focusing on how to start implementing PuMP® to choose, create and use your first meaningful performance measures, in a way that brings quick success.
