Thinking of tracking metrics for your various business tools, but realizing it’s kind of a hassle? It’s like going to the doctor for a check-up — you’ve got to take time off work, commute there and back, and rely on someone else’s expertise to get an accurate assessment. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if you could just step on the scale in the comfort of your own home, and see in an instant your health and wellness indicators?
In researching how managers are trying to track business metrics, we’ve noticed a few things.
If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you quickly run into things like:
- Inordinate amounts of setup time to configure the metrics within your existing tool (or in Excel if you like to stick to the classics)
- Unclear definitions of metrics criteria (What makes up my total revenue figure? Which helpdesk ticket statuses are included or excluded from a customer wait time calculation?)
- General shooting-in-the-dark scenarios (what metrics are other people tracking? Is my configuration aligned with industry standards?)
If you are (or were) scared off by the above experiences and you opted for some help, you may still find:
- There is a high cost of both time and money to acquire specialized help, whether that be an IT resource or the purchase of a business intelligence tool.
- Reliance on external support often means a disconnect from making metrics a part of your daily routine. Having to accommodate somebody else’s schedule makes it easy for you to lose track or lose interest.
So what is a team lead, a department head or a business owner supposed to do? Spend countless hours navigating the options to find the lesser of two evils? Not track metrics at all? While it’s easy to avoid it or to blindly choose a solution, I would like to throw a third option on the table.
