As an accountancy firm do you measure what matters most?
KPIs – Key Performance Indicators, they help you measure whether your firm is a success…
But what are you measuring? Are you measuring the right things?
Most firms are guilty of measuring what they think is right rather than measuring what matters most.
Financially-focused measures are of course important, but do they drive real change in the actions you take to change the results of your firm?
It’s easy to accept the ‘way things have always been’ and continue to measure what you have always measured in the past, but your firm may be a risk if you don’t measure what matters most to your clients.
Your decision-making and actions will change when you and your people use client-focused KPIs.
