Essential Business Practices
Know What To Do But Don’t Know What To Do First

making daily decisions

One of your main jobs as a CEO is to make daily decisions for your company. As your business grows, your ability to keep track of everything is diminished if you don’t develop systematic ways to learn about what’s going on. A weekly Company KPI report (Key Performance Indicators) is essential for making better decisions, gauging performance against plan, seeing trends, preventing surprises and keeping the conversation focused on what matters most. We show you how to lay out a KPI for all your departments and get your team on board to this way of doing things.

Information also covers reporting. For instance, because a business runs on money we need accurate financial reporting, and because you can’t operate in a vacuum, you need a process to collect external market data.

Finally, a management information system is vital for containing, managing, analyzing and reporting all of your information.
