No major business decision is made without regard to its many impacts on the organization. Accurately measuring performance?of individuals, departments, projects, and initiatives?is the single best way to ensure strong, sustainable results. But many organizations have flawed or inconsistent measurement systems, which can lead to disaster. It is incumbent upon all enterprises to measure the right things and to do so in a manner that is aligned with corporate goals.
