Rethink the Way We Measure and Drive Organisational Success
Transforming Performance Measurement. Accurately measuring performance―of individuals, departments, projects, and initiatives―is the single best way to ensure strong, sustainable results. But many organizations have flawed or inconsistent measurement systems, which can lead to disaster. Transforming Performance Measurement helps organizations maximize the value of their performance measurement approaches.
It’s no secret that you can’t improve your organisation’s performance without measuring it. In fact, every function, unit, process, and the organization as a whole, wholes built and run according to the parameters and expectations of its measurement system.
So you’d better make sure you’re doing it right. All too often, performance measurement creates dysfunction, whether among individuals, teams, teams across entire divisions of organizations. Most traditional measurement systems actually encourage unhealthy competition for personal gain, creating internal conflicting breeding distrust of performance measures.
Transforming Performance Measurement presents a breakthrough approach that will not only significantly reduce those dysfunctional, but also promote alignment with the business strategy, maximise cross-enterprise integration, and help everyone to work collaboratively to drive value throughout your organization.
Performance measurement is a dynamic process that calls for an awareness of the balance necessary between seemingly disparate ideas: the technical and the social aspects of performance measurement. For example, you need technology to manage the flood data, but you must make sure that it supports the people who will be making decisions and taking action crucial to your organisational success.
