Archive for June, 2011 Performance Architect update 37/2011 - a year in review

The end of June marks in Australia the end of the financial year, a time to evaluate the past 12 months and reconfirm the plans for the next 12 months. In terms of growth, figures speak for themselves:

  • 6500 KPI examples documented;
  • 1034 KPIs in Practice reports analyzed and cataloged;
  • 410 Blog posts written;
  • 40 Example of organizational objectives listed;
  • 36 iKPI profiles developed;
  • 21 Performance Panorama interviews published.

Enabling these results are thousands of hours our research team spent on researching and analysing tens of thousands of performance management resources. The insights gained as part of this work were captured in a series of premium products launched over the last few months:

  • smartKPIs Premium, containing 1500 KPI examples documented in over 30 fields;
  • The Top KPIs of 2010 series of research reports, with 17 launched so far outlining over 400 KPI examples, proved to be the most popular with members of the community in 2010;
  • pre-populated templates, containing 24 products supporting the deployment of KPIs in organizations through scorecards, dashboard and entire performance management systems.

Over the year, members of the team travelled for research, conferences or workshop facilitation in Australia, England, Lebanon, Malaysia, Qatar, Romania, Scotland, UAE and Vietnam, reconfirming the commitment to learn from practice, integrate academic rigour/insights and deliver practical solutions.
