Scorecards & KPIs

For internal reporting and efficiency management, scorecards and key performance indicators (KPIs) are a proven way of keeping track of how well teams are performing compared to what is expected, as well as constantly updating what is considered a ‘good’ performance from a management standpoint.

By using dashboards to visualise this information, board members and managers can view simple charts or gauges to see whether a person or team is meeting the expected standard. As with reporting, there a many products available to help create these dashboards, such as Microsoft Power BI, where dashboards can be tailored to be fit for purpose. KPIs are not necessarily financially based, so a clear visualisation of these as part of a dashboard can be particularly helpful to members of a company who may not have the time to talk through any non-financial progress.

The balanced scorecard

The balanced scorecard is not just a reporting technique for internal management, but a strategic planning and management process.

By balancing the financial and developmental performance indicators together, a clear picture of the company’s overall performance is achieved. This leads on to knowing whether such paths as internal expansion or streamlining are possible or necessary: whether one team is taking on too much of the workload, while another team is overstaffed.

What KPIs should I use in my business or industry?

As all industries have different KPIs, each dashboard needs to be tailored for the end-user, requiring engagement from all parties as to which areas of the business need to be visualised, and how. For example:

  • For call centres dealing with customer service and quality assurance, monitoring the time taken to achieve customer satisfaction or determining average customer value prior to the call can help a business decide where to provide training, whether more staff is required, or how to proceed with specific customers.
  • Funding management and financial output can be more easily managed when other areas of the business are monitored for their effect on it.
  • Non-financial metrics by which all performance areas can be measured in order to encourage individual and corporate self-improvement.
