Implementing Performance Measurement

Guide to Implementing Performance Measurement Systems


Performance measurement drives continuous improvement. It can

  • Focus improvement: identify areas of poor performance and help focus improvement in those areas. 

  • Share best practice: identify areas of great performance which should be shared throughout your business.

  • Win work:  benchmark your performance & evidence your competencies to help you win work.

  • Drive innovation: demonstrate you have a performance measurement system with the power to generate innovation

But when you are new to measurement, it can be hard to know whether the scores you are achieving are any good or not. How do you compare to the rest of the industry or your direct competitors?
