Lost in the forest: Tying transformation metrics to business outcomes
Have you ever looked at a dashboard and felt lost? Have you been asked the question “why are we doing this?” and your answer has been “everyone is doing it.” Have you struggled to explain how your actions are going to benefit your business partners? Let’s explore ways to tie our metrics, progress, and transformation activities to business outcomes that matter to our organizations. We’ll start the session discussing why it’s important to map our transformation activities and metrics to organizational goals. We’ll also review real life examples of completed visual maps. You might be saying “I see the benefits, those examples are great, but how can I do this?” I’m glad you asked! We’ll spend the remainder of the session demonstrating a workshop method on how to build that map from top to bottom. There’s even a handy acronym to remember the steps. You’ll have your business partners excited and on board in no time! Let’s get back to seeing the forest.
