Goal-Driven Business Measurements 

To stay competitive, organizations have to have a high level of agility to adapt rapidly and cost efficiently to complex challenges. Strategically aligned process measures, metrics and Key Process Indicators (KPI) become an integral part of successful organization.  Can we ever achieve the level of flexibility, balance and technology alignment to effectively support the enterprise? 

This collaborative workshop will examine the concepts of Management Scorecards, Innovation Curve and Measurement Framework and introduce a clear, concise methodology that will help better understand, monitor and measure  critical processes, analyze challenges and proactively take action.

The seminar presentation is based on the concepts described in the upcoming book by Joseph Raynus: "Improving Business Process Performance - Gain Agility, Create Value, and Achieve Success".
