  • How Relevant is the goal to your organization?
  • What is the Time-frame for achieving this goal?

The reasons why KPIs are important include:

  • The ability to identify and correct negative trends that may be occurring and make key decisions based on collected business intelligence 
  • Growing knowledge and involvement - KPIs create an atmosphere of learning in an organization as they generate ideas between staff that can lead to innovation and a better understanding of the business strategy. 
  • Felling part of the Team - Receiving positive feedback or incentives for meeting KPIs can be rewarding and motivating for staff. Without measuring outcomes, quality work can easily be overlooked. 
  • Consistency for sustainability - People, priorities, and goals in a business may change over time, but the measurement of a KPI should remain consistent. This is essential for monitoring long-term strategic goals.
