"If you can not measure it, you can not improve it."

- Lord Kelvin

Performance metrics measure an organization's behavior, activities, and performance across functions, products, and services. They should consider a range of stakeholder needs from customers, shareholders, leaders and managers, as well as employees.
Often called Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), they provide an analytical basis for decision making and help organizations focus attention on what matters most.
