The Most Common KPI Questions

Answers to Your Biggest Performance Measure and KPI Questions

Over the many years since 1999, when I started my business as the Performance Measure Specialist, tens of thousands of people around the world have told me their biggest KPI questions, and biggest struggles with performance measurement.

And these people represent just about every type of organisation or company on the planet:

  • public and private sector organisations
  • not-for-profit organisations
  • all sizes, from a local boutique gymnasium to a multinational aeronautical company
  • countless industries, like defence, aged care, education, police, transport, retail, and health
  • all levels of government, from small regional councils to large federal agencies
  • from almost every country in the world
  • they are leaders, managers, strategy and performance professionals, project managers, business analysts and consultants
