This session is designed to share the process of aligning employee KPIs with organizational KPIs for verifiable impact.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyse the organization's vision, mission, values, goals and objectives.
  • Determine organizational priorities in terms of quantity, cost, timeliness, compliance and quality of work.
