Businesses face constant pressure to achieve improved performance and are facing increasing scrutiny on how that performance is being delivered. Finance are traditionally seen as the masters of rigorous measurement to enable financial performance and we have the capability to apply that across the whole organisation.

We can lose sight of measuring what really matters: restricted in our thinking by financial reporting measures and not really identifying the drivers of past or future performance.

This course will highlight which financial measures really matter and then show how to identify business driver measures, including those in a balanced scorecard style approach and those from a sustainability and integrated thinking approach. You will pick up many tips on choosing and designing the right business metrics.

On completion of this course, you will have a greater understanding of:

  • reviewing your metrics against the features of good KPIs
  • emphasising value in the selection of financial metrics
  • applying a tool to select key non-financial metrics
  • aligning metrics throughout the business
  • explaining metrics for an integrated view of business performance
  • reconsidering your metrics against various design criteria.

Key information

  • help meet your annual CPD requirements
