Brokeback KPI

"Why should I" Brokeback, "if they do not care what they want, then write." On such issues says a lot, but no specific "recipes" As a rule, are proposed. The second "ravine" – the definition of the planned values of the measured performance (threshold, the Plan, Call). And inflated, and lower values demotiviruyut workers, therefore, in the case misuse of their definition, the management of KPI loses its meaning. Often indicators are defined as follows: the work of the last reporting period (eg quarter) are adopted as a plan for the current quarter. The method is simple, but in practice it often turns out to be inaccurate, since it does not take into account both external factors (that affect performance) and internal factors (such as working people). For example, if last month's subordinates not efficient enough, the threshold will be too low, the reverse situation – too high. Korn Ferry may find it difficult to be quoted properly. Third, the biggest "ravine" – the complexity of determining the causes of failure (not achieving the planned values staff efficiency).

If the plan met or exceeded, then, as a rule, no question, due to what. Ate, the plan is not executed, you must be able to determine the cause. It is not something Jeffrey Leiden would like to discuss. How to do it in practice? After all, the source of the problem can be not only not good enough job of employees, but improper installation performance thresholds (see the first "ravine"), as well as external factors. Realizing this, many executives intentionally "understate bar ", emasculating, thus, the essence of management KPI. If you know where the "valleys", they can be circumvented. This "bypass" could be the phased introduction of management of KPI, starting with a preparatory phase lasting at least 6 months. During the preparation to be addressed the following important tasks: Psychological training of personnel (both employees and line managers) to a new form of labor relations. Employees are getting used to the fact that every hour spent at work, should be spent on achieving these goals.

Public Administrations

How many times when abrir the house mailbox we have thought that too many business letters are sent? The climatic change is in the mind of all and, in many occasions, this excess of paper can worry to the consumers about the uncertainty that supposes not to know with exactitude the life expectancy the natural resources the Earth. Every day, the citizens we constantly received messages on the importance of recycle or in mass media or the advertising campaigns of the Public Administrations. Although in the last decades the Spaniards we have regained consciousness in this practice, the global number obtained not yet is sufficient. Unfortunately, the good one for doing of is eclipsed by the lack of awareness of other so many, that they continue making contingency not covered by law to the problems that it causes to us, and will cause in the future very near, the feared climatic change. According to a report corresponding to the first trimester of 2011 published by EUROSTAT, the communitarian statistical office, Spain are below average of the European Union as far as sweepings recycling although it generates more than the average of the set of the 27 Member States. Concretely, each Spanish produces to the year 547 kilos of sweepings, of which 82 are only recycle. More than half of the total (52%) he finishes in garbage dumps. And he is that he is not enough that the effort is made solely from the Public Administrations, but is necessary that each of us, in the measurement of its possibilities, tries to become one more a more sustainable person. In spite of the discouraging data, there is a positive aspect and he is that our country reduced in five percentage points the volume of remainders that it sends to the garbage dump in comparison with the data of the previous year.
