Free Top 30 SME KPIs
A Fundamental Resource for SMEs to use when creating Simple Reports and Dashboards
WARNING This is a menu not a banquet – don’t use all of these together
Here is what to do with this list:
- Step 1 – Don’t use them all!
- Step 2 – Choose 8 and build the data collection and reporting of these top 8 into your weekly reporting routine.
For Smaller SMEs the suggested break of your Top 8 is a mix of the following:
• Financial – three
• Performance – two
• Business Generation – one
• People – one
• Any other vital parameter – one
When deciding which 8 are the most important make your choice based on your current business strategy for profitable growth offset with reducing risks to the business.
For Larger SMEs– If you are a big enough business to have departments then the Director’s ‘Top 8’ will reflect the above list ; however every department should also have its own top 8 which more heavily reflects their departmental focus.
e.g. The sales department may have: Two Financial, Five Business Generation, One Performance ,One People , and One measure for Market Environment.
