Course description

Key Performance Indicator Professional (KPIP) ONLINE "LIVE" Certification

KPI and performance measurement development is a discipline that involves articulating what an organization is trying to accomplish and then identifying the most meaningful and useful indicators of success. It is an essential part of business analysis.  Simply selecting standard measures from a long list of possible measures is not effective. Performance measures, or KPIs, are a key part of any strategic management system, as they are critical to analysis and assessing the effectiveness of strategy implementation. KPIs also help with analysis of the gap between actual and targeted performance, and with measurement of organizational effectiveness and operational efficiency. Operational measures, project measures, risk measures, and employee performance management provide an early-warning system throughout an organization to help improve performance. Meaningful and strong KPIs provide insight into whether strategies are working, whether programs, projects and services are on schedule, on budget, and delivered effectively. KPIs focus employees' attention on what matters most to success, and allow for measurement of accomplishments.

This program is designed for all sectors—business and industry, government, and non-profit—and provides participants with practical tools to developing meaningful strategic and operational performance measures, and then develop their skills through a series of practical application exercises. Participants are taught how to use tools like the Logic Model, Cause-Effect Analysis, and Process Flow Analysis, used by organizations around the world, to understand, perform analysis and articulate desired results, determine what to measure, set targets and thresholds, develop composite measures using lower level performance measures, measure outcomes, outputs, processes, and inputs, and produce visually appealing reports and dashboards that better inform decision making throughout an organization. This course is designed to help participants understand the fundamentals of performance management, then successfully develop, deploy, and manage meaningful KPIs for strategic, operational, or program management.

Training content

This program is made up of hands-on workshops taught by the most senior Institute facilitating consultants, and is designed to enable anyone involved with developing performance measures to learn best practices so they can more effectively and efficiently develop, deploy and manage KPIs. Instructors will work closely with each participant so they can understand the important business drivers that ensure a successful performance measurement system implementation. Participants will contribute to organizational success by measuring what matters most and apply it to what they learned to their own organization's performance measurement architecture. This program appeals to leaders and managers internationally, and past participants have raved about the value they received from working side-by-side with others who come from all over the world and various organization types. This sharing of practical experience occurs through classroom discussions, through meet-and-greet receptions scheduled during the week, and in some cases through electronic correspondence long after the course has ended.
