Performance Measurement

and Management

Based on over 20 years of involvement in performance improvement in a variety of organisations (private industry, university, health, NGOs) in Australia, Asia and the Pacific, it is clear that one of the major challenges faced by many organisations is how to effectively measure, monitor and manage performance. This is one area where organisations sometimes need expert external assistance. We are able to guide organisations to identify relevant, practical performance measures / KPIs, set performance targets and establish effective organisational performance reporting and feedback loops.
