What people are saying about 'KPI Checklists'

Excellent book, really useful practical guide that you can keep going back to

Definitely worth a read if you need to evidence any kind of delivery or want to transform the way your company operates for the better!

 

Superb

This guide pulls off the neat trick of being thoroughly grounded in both academic theory and extensive commercial practice whilst also being accessible, brief and well structured. Highly practical, packed with reusable materials and tips, and written in good humour this book stands out from the more complex, self-important and ultimately forgettable crowd of pristine management books that litter my shelves. I read this book in an afternoon and came away with a heap of new ideas and practical actions. My troublesome short attention span never wavered. Quite simply a must have for anyone interested in the art and science of using measurement to drive performance. Destined to become dog-eared, much referred to and scribbled in....

Great Book on KPIs

I loved this book. Very clear, simple and easy way to fully implement a KPI system. The book applied lean principles and didn't leave out the need to assess, improve and manage the data that comprises the KPIs. Simply outstanding!

Awesome book, now in use in several projects.

This book is brilliant. In my role as organiser for the Digital Transformation group in Reading I have learned that business are really chaotic about their approach to strategy and execution. All to often it isn't done in a controlled way with a clear process with data. This book actually distills a process into a simple and systematic process, which we could all do with a bit more of. Thanks Bernie!
