Result Indicators offer an overview of past performance, help corporate management unify information on a company or department’s performance, and provide insight into what steps leaders should take to improve.

Result indicators can be financial or non-financial indicators and reflect more than one team’s activity, thus showing how groups are working together. (1)

Result indicators is a goal-setting method that has been around for decades, and it is known to bring many benefits to organizations. The benefits come to those who follow best practices and avoid the most common mistakes. (3)

Without measuring:
- we’re doing no better than guessing.
- we can’t know if our actions are working or not
- we don’t do better than mediocre.
- we can’t anticipate and prevent or mitigate problems.
- we can’t agree on what success looks like.
- we can’t objectively prioritize.
- we suffer from uncertainty and a lack of self-efficacy.
- any attempt at using data will be trivial.
