Providing a clear line-of-sight between Actions & KPIs KPI Alignment

KPI Alignment

You have rolled out a performance management system or in the midst of rolling out one for your organisation. That's fantastic but do your employees understand what the measurements really mean ? Do they know which levers to pull to move the numbers towards the right direction.

At ProfitAbility, we design business simulations that replicate how your business works in real terms. A deep understanding of how, precisely, your business creates value is vital to a lasting and realistic experience that you can use over and over again as a core mechanism to rapidly align your people to implement your strategy. It helps employees see the big picture on how their actions (and at times in-actions) connect to the performance of the company, make sense of the metrics and come together to deliver results.

Breaking Down Silos. Aligning the Organisation Employee Alignment

Employee Alignment

According to a August 18 2015 article published in 'The Entrepreneur' entitled 'The 4 Levels of Organizational Alignment', there the four levels of organisational alignment that every company needs to build and maintain. They are

1. Employee-role alignment
2. Employee-goal alignment
3. Employee-team alignment
4. Employee-organization alignment

Organisations often have put in place the mechanics of the first three - that might include elements of job descriptions, coaching, performamce reviews and accountability frameworks. However, the employee-organisation alignment is a tougher nut to crack. According to the article, this requires employees to see beyond their individual and team work goals. Employees need to be able to have a clear line of sight between their roles and acotions to the organisations business and financial objectives.

Our simulations are designed to replicate as close as possible how your company works in real terms. It allows employees to experience first hand how their actions (and at times in-actions) connect to the performance of the company.
