6 Things To Think About While Instituting A KPI Program

kpi programIf you’re going to be serious about improving the enterprise value of your company you must put a key performance indicator (KPI) program in your company.  I love the saying “that which gets measured, gets done.”  That statement is one of the most important one can make when improving the value of your company.

There is also a second and probably more important part of instituting a KPI program.  That is understanding what the drivers are for your business and what drives the KPI’s you’re measuring.  Driver measurement is what will actually make your business better.  KPI’s are just the proof that you are making your company better and more valuable, both to you as an owner and to a potential buyer when it comes time to leave your business.

key performance indicatorsI’m always amazed when I run across Chief Financial Officers who don’t believe a cash flow statement is the most important part of the financial package when it comes to small business management.  Small businesses run on cash and knowing where cash is and where it’s gone is among the most important things a small business owner can know.

One of those strategic activities is in the realm of installing and measuring KPI’s in your company.  A good rent a CFO should have a very strong skill set in developing KPI’s (key performance indicators) as well as putting together the drivers the make the KPI’s move.  In fact, I think this is one of the most useful things a CFO can do for any company.

5 Ways To Break Down Your Silo's - KPI

Breaking Down SilosI’ve been reading a bit about how companies and their employees lose focus on what they’re supposed to be doing.  The writers were lamenting that silos exist and getting people to talk across silos is a difficult task.  I agree, it is a difficult, but not impossible task.

When one thinks about breaking down silos we have to ask the question why these silos exist in the first place.  For many it’s because individual functions become more important than the companies purpose.  For others, its just inertia and no one has pointed out a better way,

7 Reasons A Rent A CFO (Chief Financial Officer) Might Make Sense

Rent a CFOMost of our Clients are relatively small (under $10,000,000 in sales per year).  As a result they often don’t have sophisticated financial reporting or analysis in their company.  In fact, many of them don’t even have bookkeepers that can provide them with accurate numbers.

In addition, I often find that our business owner Clients don’t have the ability and have never learned how to read their complete financial statements.  Most of them can read their profit and loss statement; some understand their balance sheet and almost none can explain their cash flow statement.  And, I think of all the reports a private business owner can get, the cash flow statement is the most important.
