Your Magic Operational Dashboard / by Kerri
Your Magic “Operational Dashboard”
Your magic “operational dashboard” is simply a listing of your business’ key metrics (your key performance metrics (KPI)). They are effective for many reasons.
GoDaddy CEO, Bob Parsons, summed it up when he said,
“Measure everything of significance. Anything that is measured and watched, improves.”
It’s simpler than you think. List your company’s key metrics; the numbers, activity, results that are important to you. These become your personal ‘magic’ dashboard.
Simply by measuring something, it can improve. Intuitively, this makes sense. Start with your own operational dashboard to track performance and exactly how your business is performing overall.
Tracking and measuring will:
- improve productivity
- demonstrate value
- provide the data to spot and fix problems faster
ACTION: Prove it to yourself. Pick 3 things significant to your bottomline. Measure, watch and track them for 30 days. See what improves.
