Key Performance Indicators

Quantitative and qualitative measurements showing how successfully an organization is achieving its investment goals. Key performance indicators vary from firm to firm, depending on one's particular needs and goals. Firms determine internally both the key performance indicators and the process of measuring them. They are used in marketing, manufacturing, and supply chain management.
