At a time when there is much uncertainty in what the political future will bring, the only thing we can control is what we do and how we run our businesses and organisations. The best way to predict the future is to create it. Used properly Key Performance Indicators are an effective way to do this.Derek Small is an expert in managing the end to end performance of manufacturing operations. He will identify how to measure performance in a way that delivers your goals whilst avoiding sub-optimal or even poor overall outcomes.He will show ways in which we can more usefully respond to KPIs, and – perhaps – get rid of some of those that mislead management thinking and subvert overall business performance. You tend to get what you measure, and what gets rewarded gets repeated – even if it leads to the wrong results.
