Presenters: Fotios Saratsiotis, Managing Director of Operations at the National Bank of Canada and Eric Sharpe, Director at AOMi
The famous Peter Drucker quote - “what gets measured, gets managed” - guides so much of business thinking today. KPIs are used by businesses to measure, monitor and manage performance; they enable managers to improve the future of the organisation.
But are you using the right set of metrics and techniques to drive the kind of behaviours that will get you the best results?
A poorly designed set of KPIs can cause managers to focus on the wrong metrics.
For example, if managers set their team to complete a standard amount of work, they will complete it at a rate that fills the time available. Team members will not be set up to exceed targets or work above the standard.
This leads the business to:
- Have increased backlogs
- Have more temporary staff or greater overtime costs
- Be reactive to change instead of proactive to change
- Be operating with significant hidden capacity.
Join this webinar to:
- Understand a better way to approach KPIs to yield the maximum results
- Learn the power of converting excess and shortfalls in capacity to bottom line savings
- Identify the importance of empowering front line managers and how you can use behavioural metrics to generate exceptional production results.
