Dynamic Performance Management
The benefits of dynamic performance improvement
Every part of an organization creates metrics to track their performance. But the downside is that organizations become swamped by a mountain of key performance indicators (KPIs) and management dashboards that end up being little more than a distraction. In fact, only a few KPIs have a major influence on cash flow, but arriving at a full understanding of those key metrics and how they interact with one another often proves elusive.
To address the problem, L.E.K. Consulting has developed Dynamic Performance Management (DPM). This rigorous analytical framework uses a seven-stage process to create genuine insight into a company’s critical KPIs and can become a catalyst for a step change in performance, organizational redesign, strategy refresh and continuous improvement. In our experience, it is reasonable to expect this process to deliver profit improvement opportunities more than 30%.
