How to Measure Success

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on September 6, 2007

How do you measure success? If the answer is not crystal-clear to you and your employees, then it’s time to take a fresh look at your definition of success. A great measure for success is both concise and memorable, integrating the sales, revenue, and production goals you are striving to achieve. Most importantly, your measure of success needs to reveal whether you are moving closer to—or farther from—your objectives. Take this opportunity to design and implement a simple yet profound success measurement for your small business. Such a beacon can communicate volumes in a straightforward way, becoming the standard for action throughout your business.
