Here’s What They Advised:  

  • Encourage cross departmental teamwork.
  • Ensure short-term goals can be achieved.
  • Use KPIs to create alignment and focus.
  • Be a true partner to your CEO, focusing on weak spots and which business metrics really matter.
  • Keep your KPIs simple and attainable.
  • Champion a cross departmental group of “floor leaders” to develop a change process and oversee its execution. This appointed team should:

    • present anecdotal evidence that underlying performance, measured by indicators, can be impacted by a change process.
    • start small, learn, and expand with practical and impactful KPIs.
