Finance KPI Tree Example
This first example KPI Tree shows many of the core financial measures and outcomes for a typical organisation structured as a KPI Tree. What makes the KPI Tree approach so valuable in situations like this is showing how the KPIs interaction and which outcomes they drive. The beauty of this approach is that is also makes it easier to spot gaps and mistakes in our thinking, so if you see something you passionately disagree with why not get in touch.
Service Improvement KPI Tree Example
This example KPI Tree show how we can rapidly develop the candidate metrics for an organisation that intends to improve the service it offers. Remember, we are not committing to measuring all of these KPIs, this step is what we call long-listing, part of the Results-Orientated KPI System . Once we have built our tree, we use the shortlisting approach to cut the list down to the most useful and practical set of KPIs.
Product Quality KPI Tree Example
Our final example KPI Tree is for Product Quality. This would be the start point for a business with physical products that wants to set up meaning measures of product quality.
