In selecting the most appropriate IT Governance and Compliance KPIs from our KPI Library for your organizational situation, keep in mind the following guiding principles:

  • Relevance: Choose KPIs that are closely linked to your Information Technology objectives and IT Governance and Compliance-level goals. If a KPI doesn't give you insight into your business objectives, it might not be relevant.
  • Actionability: The best KPIs are those that provide data that you can act upon. If you can't change your strategy based on the KPI, it might not be practical.
  • Clarity: Ensure that each KPI is clear and understandable to all stakeholders. If people can't interpret the KPI easily, it won't be effective.
  • Timeliness: Select KPIs that provide timely data so that you can make decisions based on the most current information available.
  • Benchmarking: Choose KPIs that allow you to compare your IT Governance and Compliance performance against industry standards or competitors.
  • Data Quality: The KPIs should be based on reliable and accurate data. If the data quality is poor, the KPIs will be misleading.
  • Balance: It's important to have a balanced set of KPIs that cover different aspects of the organization—e.g. financial, customer, process, learning, and growth perspectives.
  • Review Cycle: Select KPIs that can be reviewed and revised regularly. As your organization and the external environment change, so too should your KPIs.

It is also important to remember that the only constant is change—strategies evolve, markets experience disruptions, and organizational environments also change over time. Thus, in an ever-evolving business landscape, what was relevant yesterday may not be today, and this principle applies directly to KPIs. We should follow these guiding principles to ensure our KPIs are maintained properly:

  • Scheduled Reviews: Establish a regular schedule (e.g. quarterly or biannually) for reviewing your IT Governance and Compliance KPIs. These reviews should be ingrained as a standard part of the business cycle, ensuring that KPIs are continually aligned with current business objectives and market conditions.
  • Inclusion of Cross-Functional Teams: Involve representatives from outside of IT Governance and Compliance in the review process. This ensures that the KPIs are examined from multiple perspectives, encompassing the full scope of the business and its environment. Diverse input can highlight unforeseen impacts or opportunities that might be overlooked by a single department.
  • Analysis of Historical Data Trends: During reviews, analyze historical data trends to determine the accuracy and relevance of each KPI. This analysis can reveal whether KPIs are consistently providing valuable insights and driving the intended actions, or if they have become outdated or less impactful.
  • Consideration of External Changes: Factor in external changes such as market shifts, economic fluctuations, technological advancements, and competitive landscape changes. KPIs must be dynamic enough to reflect these external factors, which can significantly influence business operations and strategy.
  • Alignment with Strategic Shifts: As organizational strategies evolve, evaluate the impact on Information Technology and IT Governance and Compliance. Consider whether the IT Governance and Compliance KPIs need to be adjusted to remain aligned with new directions. This may involve adding new IT Governance and Compliance KPIs, phasing out ones that are no longer relevant, or modifying existing ones to better reflect the current strategic focus.
  • Feedback Mechanisms: Implement a feedback mechanism where employees can report challenges and observations related to KPIs. Frontline insights are crucial as they can provide real-world feedback on the practicality and impact of KPIs.
  • Technology and Tools for Real-Time Analysis: Utilize advanced analytics tools and business intelligence software that can provide real-time data and predictive analytics. This technology aids in quicker identification of trends and potential areas for KPI adjustment.
  • Documentation and Communication: Ensure that any changes to the IT Governance and Compliance KPIs are well-documented and communicated across the organization. This maintains clarity and ensures that all team members are working towards the same objectives with a clear understanding of what needs to be measured and why.

By systematically reviewing and adjusting our IT Governance and Compliance KPIs, we can ensure that your organization's decision-making is always supported by the most relevant and actionable data, keeping the organization agile and aligned with its evolving strategic objectives.
