Metrics are among the most potent tools for effective management of any organization. It is by them that individuals within an organization best relate to what they are doing, how they are progressing with what they are doing, if adjustments need to be made to what they are doing, and why those adjustments are necessary.
Want to derive multi-dimensional benefits from internal stakeholders and boost their involvement as indispensable contributors to high impact planning and performance? Well… metric-up! Tie all aspects of planning, yep all, to a “who to do” (from top management to line staff) and to a “how to do” (performance measure) Yep…”metric it”…”metric that”…”metric this”. Hey listen…metric up the entire place….yep, yep, yep metric up!
