close Improving Performance with the Correct KPI’s

Warehouse Management and OptimizationIngersoll Rand - Operations Leader

Selection of KPI’s is a foundational activity to ensure the success of any organization. Too often, organizations choose and manage KPI’s that do not truly measure the attributes of performance that indicate true performance. Often times, an organization does not have alignment on what is being measured throughout. In order to ensure this alignment and proper KPI selection, the following 3 elements should be considered: Stakeholders, Strategy & Structure. Once those are clearly established, success will be determined by a rigorous system for execution. 7 Basic LEAN tools can be deployed to ensure a cultural shift towards flawless execution.

Key Takeaways:

  • Stakeholders – Take into account all stakeholders and how THEY measure performance. Employees, Customers, Suppliers & Shareholders top the list.
  • Strategy – Overall strategy must be clearly developed and documented. Development of an X-Matrix (Hoshin-Kanri) should clearly document: 5 Yr & 1 Yr objectives, SIPs, Resources
  • Structure – As companies cascade their KPI’s & goals down, they can become meaningless to the layers below. As goals are cascaded, select KPI’s that are: Critical Few, Within Control, Leading, Accurate & Consistent.
  • Execution – Wildly Important, Leading, Scoreboard, Accountability
