SIG University Certified Sourcing Professional (CSP) program graduate Thomas Moran shares the different types of KPIs that are vital to an organization and the importance of performance management.
A KPI is a Key performance indicator; this is a measurable rate or value that demonstrates how effectively and efficiently a team or objectives is performing. Many companies use KPIs to evaluate success in reaching goals or targets. They should have a clear objective and align with your business goals.
Why are they important?
KPIs are necessary to determine if a business is meeting its goals, give accountability, and leverage the health of outsourced relationships based on performance metrics. If we look at BPO ( Business process outsourcing ), KPIs are critical to determining the work's weekly, monthly, and quarterly health of the outsourced work. It creates accountability to ensure. Vendors are meeting and maintaining these values and ensuring the work they are supplying is consistently kept to a high standard.
Setting and Measuring KPI
KPI should be directly related to your business goals. These should be quantifiable measurements to gauge the health of your work. For instance, in some BPO work, your KPI could be based on customer satisfaction rates, turnaround time, quality of action taken, or how effectively and efficiently the team is performing productively.
