Why Choose this Training Course?
Strategic performance management is high on the agenda of most managers and senior executives. Insufficient or misunderstanding of the performance management concepts often produces poor results and frustrations. Real benefits are only realised by designing and integrated system across the entire organisation based on visible and commonly understood strategic objectives using executive dashboards.
Sometimes referred to as a strategic dashboard, an executive dashboard is intended to give executives a holistic overview of the enterprise and how it is preforming against established Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). Dashboards consolidate and arrange numbers, Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and sometimes performance scorecards on a single screen, tailored for C-level executives and managers, allowing them to get a big picture view of the organisation against critical metrics, identify opportunities for expansion, and see where improvements are needed. The goal is to deliver a graphical interface using real-time data, enabling executives to make data-driven decisions whenever needed.
