A performance measure or metric that specifies an emphasis intended to produce a desired result is called a Key Performance Indicator or KPI . KPIs are quantifiable measurements that gauge success of a process or project or a business as a whole. KPIs typically represent values, statuses, trends, or goals even though they can be diverse in nature, KPIs often combine two or more of these into a single indicator. The purpose of a KPI is to present high level and summary information to top level executives (CXOs) or other managers of the company. They use the information to steer an integrated organization. Typically we limit the number of these vital measures to only a few so that the management can get an idea of the whole picture by simply glancing at the important KPIs.
KPIs are typically graphical in nature, and are collected/displayed into a dashboard, scorecard, where they can be easily accessed by the management team. One can obtain a quick and accurate summary of business success or progress toward success by looking at these KPI dashboards. KPIs make it easy for management to understand, make decisions and take action. Based upon the information provided by the indicators, managers can pull the processes and activities that the KPIs represent into alignment with the companies strategic goals and objectives.
