Performance measurement for results

Performance measurement for results

Online Course on Measuring Performance to Deliver Results

Organisations need to measure the performance of their processes – to prove the benefits that they are delivering and ensure that they are offering value for money.

However, performance measurement can be challenging. Inappropriate measures can result in unintended consequences, with the wrong priorities. Additionally, the outputs of many processes are intangible and difficult to measure.

The solution is to take a structured approach when designing performance measures.

This online training course helps you to ensure that your performance measures reflect how your processes actually operate. It will also help you monitor and report data in a way that drives useful and sustainable improvements.

Our Performance Measurement Course will enable the learner to:

• Develop performance measures that link organisational goals with operational performance
• Monitor and report data in a way that focuses attention on improvement
• Determine whether a process has delivered the expected benefits
