Performance Benchmarks

A benchmark is a line drawn in the work (and applied to each KPI). Performance at or above this line indicates high level of achievement; performance below the line indicates further effort is required.

Key Performance Indicators

KPI’s are meaningful and measurable performance indices applicable to a specific (every) level within the organization. The company President has one set of KPI’s...the Manager of Human Resources has a different set. If properly defined and aligned, KPI’s provide laser-beam targeting of performance improvements for individual, teams, and the entire integrated organization.
