StrategyDriven Organizational Performance Measures Forum

StrategyDriven Introduction to Organizational Performance MeasuresPerformance measures serve to align an organization’s efforts to the achievement of its mission. As part of a company’s evaluation and control program, they quantifiably monitor important characteristics of the company’s products and services and the performance of the individuals and processes creating them. Performance measures support managerial decision-making by providing useful information regarding:

  • how efficient and effective are the company’s processes and the individuals implementing them
  • if product or service improvements are necessary
  • if the company’s customers and stakeholders are satisfied
  • if the company is meeting its stated goals

Performance measures best serve an organization when they are understandable, broadly applicable, uniformly interpreted, and economic to apply. They should cascade through and organization’s hierarchy such that achievement of lower tiered performance goals support higher tiered goals that in turn ultimately support achievement of the company’s mission.
