Developing a set of indicators can be hard. People often sit around with a blank piece of paper scratching their heads trying to come up with their organization, or initiative’s, indicators. It does not have to be this hard. . To make it easier, just build a DoView visual strategy model first. Then all you need to do is to look at each box in the model and ask the question: ‘can I measure this box?’ You then put any indicator(s) measuring that particular box next to the box.

Once you have done this, you have mapped the set of indicators that you could potentially use to measure performance. Mapping your indicators onto a visual strategy model in this way has a number of advantages. 

First, you can quickly see what you are, and what you are not, currently measuring. Second, you can see the level at which you are measuring things and make sure you have suitable measures at each level. Third you can use the indicators mapped onto your strategy model as an ‘indicator inventory’. You can go through and mark the report in which each indicator is going to appear. This means you can also keep a record of the indicators that you used to measure in the past and ones that you might potentially measure in the future.

Look at each box in the plan and aks if you can measure it?

If you can measure it, and if it is controllable by the party you are developing KPIs for then it is possible for it to be a KPI. Below are some traditional financial KPIs mapped onto a DoView Strategic Plan.

Lower-level KPIs

People are well aware of the type of financial KPIs we showed above, we just showed them so you know where they fit within a DoView Visual Strategic Plan. The DoView approach comes into it’s own when you’re trying to quickly identify those important lower-level KPIs which you need to measure to ultimately achieve success. Below are some KPIs related to marketing.

Use DoView for prototyping your KPI system

Most people are moving to dashboarding systems for their KPIs these days such as Dashboard. You can use DoView to identify you KPIs against your underlying DoView Visual Strategic Plan. You then just put the KPIs you want to routinely measure into a dashboarding system such as X or just use an excell spread sheet.

Prove that your projects are focused on your priorities

Prove that you're focusing your projects on your priorities. The white number at the bottom of each box shows the number of projects focused on each box. The 'Clarity about IP’ box, in spite of being an ‘A’ priority, does not have any projects focused on it. Therefore, there is a lack of ‘line-of-sight’. It is either not a priority, or it needs at least one new project focused on it.

Use a poster to show you've mapped your projects onto priorities

Rapidly communicate the fact that you have line-of-sight alignment to others. Do this in whatever format is appropriate: within DoView Software, as a printed model, as a printed poster.

Click within DoView Software or produce listing of which boxes each project is focusing on

Either use the DoView Software version of your model and right click on any priority box to see the projects that are focused on it, or create a PDF listing showing this. Conceptually, this provides a standardized language for your to describe the purpose or outcomes of each of your projects. This is essential in all project planning if you are going to ensure strategic alignment. Doing it within DoView is a lot faster and clearer than the traditional approach.

Anyone can use the above DoView software company visual strategic plan, with acknowledgment, for their own company and for their own for-profit or not-for-profit consulting work if they, or their clients, are using DoView Software. Anyone can use it to teach anyone else how to use DoView software. If you want to use it for other purposes please contact general@doview.com.



Using DoView to develop corporate strategy 





In the past, identifying Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) was always been painful. People sat around the table scratching their heads trying to figure out what their KPIs should be. In the DoView® approach, once you’ve drawn your DoView® Visual Strategic Plan you simply eye-ball each box within the visual strategic plan and ask ‘can I measure this box?’ It’s as simple as that!
