- Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of metrics and reports you look at every day? Are you unsure of which metrics matter the most and why? Have you ever taken over a new team and wondered which metrics are most important? I'm Mike Figliuolo, Managing Director at thoughtLEADERS, and I've dealt with literally thousands of metrics over the years, from revenue, to cost, to strategic planning, to day to day tactical ones. I've faced the same challenges that you may be experiencing, the need to cut through the clutter and focus on metrics that drive business results.
In this course, we'll cover how to think about measurement using quantitative and qualitative measures, various types of reporting, and good measurement processes and practices. We'll use a value chain approach to explore metrics for all different functions. These functions include sales, operations, HR and more. Whether you have a product based business, or a service based one, the tools in this course will apply to you. I'm excited to share these techniques and approaches with you.
I hope they'll help you focus your limited time on the metrics that truly matter. Let's dive in.
