Template: Define the data attributes of your KPIs

Without a detailed analysis of data attributes, KPIs are unlikely to be accepted or used consistently across the organisation.

There is also a risk that underlying performance issues will be neglected in favour of discussions about data quality and different sources of data.

Use this template to:

  • Define the data attributes for each Key Performance Indicator (KPI) that you need.
  • Develop a common understanding of key data attributes.
  • Brief your IT department (when resources are applied to automating the collection, storing and reporting of data).

This template will help you to define and record these attributes.
