Metrics & Measurements

A very important tool in facilitating change is establishing a metrics and measurement program that can help you benchmark existing conditions, set goals, identify “high bar” or “reach” goals, identify ranges of "acceptable” performance, and marshal empirical evidence on performance of projects in other areas. Quantitative and qualitative data can be remarkably powerful allies as you work to dispel fears about risk and performance failure, compare costs and benefits, evaluate year-to-year performance, and build a case for your program over time.

Reasons to measure performance:

• Show success

• Build a case for future projects

• Identify design flaws

• Identify maintenance needs

• Meet regulatory requirements

• Establish performance benchmarks
