Advancing and realizing organizational performance has become a key initiative of many organizations. CEOs and Boards in most cases look to the CFO and the finance organization to deploy, own and be accountable for the success of these initiatives. A core component of a performance program is the successful development and deployment of key performance indicators (KPI’s) and analytics.

  • Considerations for aligning KPIs with an organization’s strategic goals
  • Key steps for planning and starting deployment of KPIs and analytics
  • Technology organizations should consider deploying to enable KPI’s and analytics
