Week 6 Discussion
Consider performance measurement in a department that you work in or are familiar with. Do you use a balanced scorecard? What are the key performance indicators that you drive towards? What type of behaviors do they drive? Are they discussed extensively and have become part of the corporate culture? If you don’t use them, do you think they could be useful? What types of KPI’s would you choose for your department or area that you are familiar with that would drive employee learning & growth, customer perceptions, internal processes, and financial growth? If you currently are using them, which of these 4 areas are your KPI’s mostly focused on? How are they measured? If you aren’t using KPI’s yet, how would you measure the ones you have chosen? How easy are these to find?
