Keep Your Eye on the Key Metrics.
- First and foremost, are we making money? Check the bottom-line.
- Are we growing according to expectations? Why or why not?
- How can we scale? Can we streamline routine process and procedures?
- What are the biggest threats to our survival? How can we mitigate the risks?
- What is our greatest opportunity going forward? What is going well and why?
- Are our employees productive? How should we invest in our greatest assets?
