All businesses must continually improve in order to survive.
The improvement process can be described as:
• Define the objective/goal.
• Measure the current situation (define the KPI).
• Analyse the way to improve.
• Implement improvement measures (e.g. a new process or method).
• Control by setting a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and measuring (using KPIs).
Why are KPIs so important?
