Key Performance Indicators (KPI) related with Key Result Areas (KRA)

Author: Amit Mehendale, Head Delivery, MAIA Intelligence.

With reference to my earlier post Key Performance Indicators KPI – A puzzle solved, few of the readers asked me to throw some more light on how KPIs could be related to KRAs (Key Result Areas) of the management thereby enabling KPIs to be a more precise snapshot of the organization.

In this article I shall highlight some of the key points as to how the KPI can be used in context with business functions.

KPI Definition & Attribute Template

Name of the KPI :

KPIDescription
KPI Objective
KPI Benefits

KPI StartDate
KPI End Date
KPI Life Span & Reporting Periodicity
KPI Unit of Measure & Formula
KPI Target Value
KPI Upper & Lower Tolerances and Anticipate Upper and Lower Limits
KPI Sponsor
KPI Initiator
KPI Benefactor
KPI Internal or Customer Facing
KPI Link to any TQM
KPI Data Sources

KPI Risks in Working Conditions
Status of KPI Either Parent or Child with detail of relationship

KPI Relationship and Links

KPI can be related to: 1. Enterprise wide 2. Objectives 3. Resources 4. Processes 5. External Agencies 6. KPI

Remarks

Using KPI requires KPI definitions and attributes to set up their implementation using the above templates. For KPI implementation, there will be a number of stages that need to be addressed. The following outlines those stages. In practice, it will be necessary to undertake a scoping exercise to ensure that all items necessary are taken into consideration. The size and cost of this exercise will depend on the nature of the requirement. The scoping exercise will outline the areas under consideration. The following items will need to be addressed, either at the scoping or in the KPI set up phase:

  • Identify and enumerate all KPIs

  • For each KPI, establish what is to be achieved by the use of this KPI

  • For each KPI, define the method of measurement

  • For each KPI, define what data will be used to measure and where that data is

  • For each KPI, define the algorithm that converts data to KPI

  • For each KPI, define the normalization or criteria

  • For each KPI, identify the organisational units to which the KPI applies

  • For each KPI, define the organisational reporting hierarchy

  • For each KPI, define the reporting requirements (table output, graphical output etc)

  • From the KPIs, identify and enumerate all data sources

  • For each data source establish how “live” the data is and define its input

  • For each data source establish the connection mechanism to its KPI object

  • As appropriate set up a data connection mechanism for the data source

  • Define an appropriate security model that will allow appropriate personnel access to appropriate data

The user interface will need defining and implementing, but this is like putting the bodywork on a car. How it looks is important, but what the engine and unseen parts do is what makes the difference between a performance car and a runabout.

Key performance indicators (KPI) are high-level snapshots of a business or organization based on specific predefined measures. KPIs typically consist of any combination of reports, spreadsheets, or charts.

They may include global or regional sales figures and trends over time, personnel stats and trends, real-time supply chain information, or anything else that is deemed critical to a corporation’s success.

Without measurable quantities, successful management is hardly possible. They allow goals to be observed, met and perhaps exceeded. Relatively generally formulated goal descriptions are made more concrete through the use of measurable quantities. The measurable quantities can then be allocated to the strategic goals in the perspectives and organisational units. The editor allows further clarifications to be made, for example by adding a comprehensive definition of the measurable quantities, complex mathematical formulae (if necessary), specification of units, etc. This is also where the warning limits for each quantity, which determine at what values the different warning colors will be switched on, are defined, giving the user a quick view of how well or how poorly each goal is being met.

1KEY KPI, or key performance indicators, are used by companies to better evaluate their current level of business success and to help plan for the future. KPI add value to aspects of business operation that are difficult to quantify, like employee satisfaction or development, and are a critical piece of long-term business intelligence strategy. When establishing KPI it is important to identify metrics that are achievable. It’s also essential that companies measure and analyze these metrics using intelligent software. Sophisticated technology provides the framework for executing multi-level analysis about profitability, process, and other metrics that impact performance; and for companies looking to find the leading state-of-the-art solution, 1KEY KPI is the answer.

1KEY KPI Chart

Take for example if the user wants KPI trend for Ageing Analysis which in turn will give better cash flow by controlling the credit period. I have filled the above template with the relevant attribute against each KPI definition. Likewise you can use this template for any business function that you might want to measure.

1KEY KPI

1KEY integrates KPI within its BI Suite. MAIA Intelligence has been providing innovative performance management & BI tools for companies across the verticals. 1KEY BI supports seamless linking of score-carding, reporting analysis thereby helps reveal big picture connections. Whatever the business focus is, 1KEY supports critical indicators with superior KPI models & templates.

Measure KPI with confidence: To achieve maximum financial success, companies must examine questions like: “What is our customer demographic?”, “How fast are we turning merchandise?”, and “What’s the rate of customer satisfaction?”. As part of the 1KEY Agile BI solution, Sales and Customer KPI modules deliver a configurable and easy-to-use framework to answer these questions. Organizations can perform in-depth margin analysis on customers and products, and view trends and key metrics. In addition, pre-built KPI tools manage campaigns. But this is just one slice of a powerful integrated program. Within 1KEY BI, users can link performance indicators to analysis software, creating endless possibilities for diagnostic reporting.

Manage large data sets using drag-and-drop method. Easily explore data threads and sort by different criteria. Produce high-impact reports fast.

In 1KEY KPI, user can set multiple conditions for multiple trends & measure multiple KPIs at a time based on Sales, HR, Product, Suppliers, etc.

  • Multiple KPI trends under single KPI group
  • Common & independent parameter
  • Filtering / Paging / Sorting
  • Top / bottom values
  • Multiple Aggregate Summaries
  • Drill down KPI to next level data

  1. Great!! Amit, thanks a lot for relating KPIs and KRAs and culminating to a Balanced Scorecard. This is precisely what I was asking for.

  2. Hi

    Could you guide me on how to assign weightages to the KPIs for retail, namely HR, Costing, Customer Experience, Store Layout etc etc?

  3. Umang, KPIs can be expressed in different ways like cost, quality, time, service, etc. All these further can be expressed in time, volume, money.

    KPIs can be:

    Absolute numbers: today the value is X, tomorrow we want the value to be Y.

    Ratio’s – today the ratio between A & B is X%, tomorrow we want Y%.

    Process – today the process requires resources and has X number of steps, in the future it will have less steps and use fewer resources.

  4. the KPI procedure was indeed a remarkable one..but could you please list down the procedure for KRA process?

  5. Maya, KRA’s to be given in the beginning of the period. The day to day activities are alligned according to those KRA’s. Documented result areas provides a path to tread. KRAs help what exactly is expected out of a person and they can performe accordingly. KRA’s deal with results and not with day to day activities and hence more quantitative the KRA’s are the easier they are to track.

    Here is the sample process one can use.

    - Talk to individual team members, gather information
    - Identify their day to day activities and hence derive key result areas
    - Document them and allocate a timeline (could be a very small document)
    - Communicate KRA’s to the team members
    - Revisit progress of an individual on these KRA’s periodically
    - Critically review performance against each of these KRA periodically
    - Facilitate them in case of deviations
    - Observe, measure, discuss and appraise

    KRA’s help individuals align their day to day activities to overall organizational/project goals in terms of results delivered.

    Any useful experiences on KRA’s that you’d like to share ?

  6. Wonderful article Amit…My take on this subject area—

    KPI’s are indeed emerging fast in todays rapidly changing business world wherein timely decision making aids in the success or failure of a business.

    Today’s world of business has got abundance of data and KPI extracts the very essence of these data and prescribe the right course of action(s) in conducting the business in a much more effective manner.

    Shall apply some of these KPI indicators in real world scenario and come back with queries,if any.

    Thanks a lot!!!

  7. send me some related KPI with KRA

  8. @ James, here is an example, of some related KPI with KRA which you can use to develop others for your organization.

    Corporate objective / strategy
    -improve the company competitive positioning and productivity by 10%.

    HR department’s objective
    -achieve high productivity level in all activities [say by 10%]
    ——————————————————-
    KRA – Recruitment/ selection

    KPA (Key Performance Area) –recruitment

    KPI —-reduce average time taken to fill vacancies by 15%
    KPI —-reduce average cost per recruit by 10%
    ——————————————-

    KRA – Workplace management

    KPA – Labour Turnover

    KPI – Females to be inducted into Management Cadre

    ——————————————-
    KRA – Safety And Health Workplace

    KPA – Safety
    KPI – accident safety ratings, benchmark with industry

    KPA – Health
    KPI – actual health expenditure vs. budget
    ——————————————–
    KRA – Effective HR Management Systems, Support and Monitoring

    KPA – HRIS
    KPI – finalize the software capital budget
    ——————————————————-

    This is, roughly, how HR departments KRAs / KPAs / KPIs are set, monitored and evaluated. This can be applied to all other functional departments like marketing / sales / production etc.

  9. Please mail me KPI with KRA for my present designation . I am working with a renowned Paint industry as taxation executive.

  10. Good question Dhrubajyoti. I have an example of KRAs for a collection manager. Start with best ones like:

    a) understand and redefine credit policies for all clients ie asset quality Vs strategic changes to credit policies.
    b) pick delinquency for >1month, > 3 months and so on…

    Make 30% of salary variable for their manager, if his team are able to achieve 80% of their targets, give him a handsome sum ie more than what he expects as a annual increment or zero. next quarter raise performance levels to 90% and so on..

    The above will help your firm in getting its money within defined timelines.

    Next ask collections executive to get additional business through existing clients and give them a incentive e.g .5% of sales…

    Similarly you can define your KRAs depending on your work profile.

  11. Amit, could you assist me with a format of a KPI for a call centre executive. Well basically its into a outbound process on business coaching. Though not specific, kindly do provide me with a format of a normal KPI / KRA for a call centre executive. The metrics on which the performance could be measured.

  12. Anitha, following points can be considered while making a KRA for a call centre executive:

    - Voice quality
    - Customer Feedback
    - MIS
    - New Initiatives
    - Handling team in the absence of Supervisor(Acting Team Lead)
    - Quality Scores
    - Targets achieved

    You need to put across the percentages against each KRA based upon the priority as per the requirement of the process

  13. Hi,

    Can you give me idea about some KRA which can be set of Project Managers in a software organisation who are handling teams.

    KRA has to be related to people/ process or self improvement.

    Regards
    Swagata

  14. Hi Swagata, KRA is an unit to measure the outputs for which a Role is responsible, be it people or process or something else.

    KRA for Project Manager in a software organization who are handling teams could be:

    1. Timely and quality delivery thereby ensuring client satisfaction
    2. Ensuring Team satisfaction and managing the team effectively
    3. Building resources and training them

    I have listed on generic KRAs. You may vary with actual job description.

  15. Hi Amit,

    All the information that you have provided has been very helpful in enhancing my understanding about KRA’s and KPI’s. This was of great help. Thank you for your previous posts.

  16. HI, Can you let me know how to link KPI’s to P & L account for a centre head.

  17. Hi,
    This is ravinder here, basically a Cost Accountant. I’m working in a ceramics company and i’ve a assignment to prepare a strategic MIS report, in which i want to use some ratios and performance indicators of various plants. So i need your help. Could you just tell me some perfomance indicators of plants product wise.

    Thanks in advance for the same.

  18. Ravinder, the following five steps help create & maintain effective Key Performance Indicators (KPI) for a manufacturing plant:

    - Study the strategic goals of your company
    - Carefully select, define, and document KPIs that will drive the desired behavior
    - Create the “will” and the “way” as described above (e.g. educate, train, and listen)
    - Begin using the KPIs to drive improved performance
    - Do it again. Lean is a continuous improvement process. That means your KPIs should evolve as needed to best match – the current strategic goals of the company

  19. Hi Amit,
    Could you let me know the following
    a. What would be the optimum number of KPIs and what factors does this depend upon?
    b. How frequently should the KPIs be revisited? Does this also depend upon the dynamics of the Industry?
    c. What should be the indicator which triggers the fact that a KPI has become redundant for a business?
    Thanks in advance for your reply.
    (Note : I work as Financial Controller for the Services businesses of our Group spread across several countries)

  20. Sivakumar, one should not feel compelled to create KPIs to match those reported by their peers. Relevance to the particular company and its chosen strategies is paramount. Accordingly, it is inappropriate to specify how many KPIs a company should have – but our experience suggests that between four and ten measures are likely to be key for most companies.

    KPIs evolve over time as strategies do. Explaining these changes aids comparability, a key principle of good corporate reporting.

  21. Hi Amit, I want to implement KRA in our company. For that I need your help, so could you please assist me with a format of a KRA for a the position of Tech Lead, Associate Teach Lead, Sr.Software engineer, Creative herd, web designer.

  22. Rashmita, KRA ‘s are based on the job description. KRA is the results or outcome for which the job holder
    is accountable. Identifying KRAs helps individuals: · Clarify their roles · Align their roles to the organisation’s business or strategic plan · Focus on results rather than activities · Communicate their role’s purposes to others · Set goals and objectives · Prioritize their activities, and therefore improve their time/work management · Make value-added decisions.

    Once you have identified KRA’s (Key Responsibility Areas) then in each of these define what the KPI (Key Performance indicator is going to be. Ensure that it can be measured and weighted). Measurements and weightings on a performance contract must add to 100 points /100%.

    Be sure to indicate how much each pillar contributes to the overall weighting. Also ensure that each KPI weighting adds up to the pillar weighting.

    The very need of KRA’s is to measure performance , It is a measurement system where output of any person can be measured . we must remember while defining KRA’s that each one of it should be quantifiable. KRA’s change only if the role of an individual changes – a role is deffined as- responsibilities for a particular job . For eg- KRA for a sales executive will change if his role changes from Sales executive to sales manager .

    Thus KRA’s can only be made and changed by immediate functional managers of that role.

  23. Hi,
    Amit, your articles provide valuable insight into BI.

    I am intersted in developing a few key clinical Performance Indicators for a Hospital information system(HIS)
    Can you give me a good reference point for the same .

  24. Clinical indicators may reflect patient outcomes, safety issues, or the appropriateness of care given. Clinical indicators flag potential clinical problems that are happening, and allow to follow this up with appropriate action. For example, an increased rate of patient falls in the hospital may indicate a need to review policy and re-educate staff and families about patients’s safety and supervision.

    Few other examples of clinical indicators might be:

    - Number of patient who develop a particular disease
    - Percentage of patient who undergo surgery who need an overnight bed (unplanned)
    - Rate of medication incidents in the hospital
    - Average patient waiting time at Admission
    - Avg. no. of pathlab requisitions

  25. Hi Amit,
    I am a new employee at gwalia and was told to manage a project on KPI. I am hopeful that you could help me out with the basics of KPI framework creation to fit the procurement strategy for public sector/ non profit organisation focusing on Best value for money to deliver Economies, Efficiency and Effectivness to meet the Challenges like:-
    1) E-Procurment / Process improvement
    2) Strategic Partnerships / Collaborative Procurement
    3) Sustainable procurement
    4) Best Practice for Construction Procurement
    5) Best Practice in Policy, Probity & Processes
    6) Promoting Equalities & Diversity
    7) Improve Communications & Staff Developement

    I would like to know how to go about in creating a framework to fit all these in…what should I look for and target and how to capture the benefits through KPI measurement. I believe the KPI may be aligned towards possible savings generated through
    i) Reduction in price:
    [difference from past to current for same goods and service or chage to substitute or alternate products without compromising quality and value]
    ii) Price avoidence:
    [negotiating a zero price increase against supplier request or through long term contract (from short term)]
    iii) Added Value / Process Change:
    limiting previous liabilities by including them in future contract; whole life cycle costing; or through consolidated actions or procedure to draw benefits of reduction redundent process or activity and resources

    If you can give and idea on how to go about it will be useful… more over the pilot e-procurement has been recently been launched and may have to look into areas to capture the KPI. Can you consider the [1-7] and [i-iii] be considered as KPA that you have mention in your earlier blog

  26. Kunalan, deliver the sustainable procurement action Plan, in particular the targets of the flexible framework. Regularly review the action plan and establish KPIs to measure success; Establish KPIs to monitor future expenditure with local suppliers and on environmental products. Strategy Implementation, Sustainable procurement, time to procure, percentage of orders raised or invoices received & paid electronically, percentage of corporate spend through electronic sourcing, etc.

    - orders raised via online system
    - orders and value via Punch Out
    - individual invoice transactions
    - contracted spend (through tenders) v/s non contract

    Define Measures:
    - compliant spend (contracts or tenders)
    - savings applied to process changes
    - savings achieved from increased compliance
    - savings achieved from increased collaboration
    - general cost savings (Efficiency Measurement Model EMM)

    Reporting strategy for procurement and related activities should allow extensive measurement and benchmarking which will be used to deliver meaningful information to support and influence positive change in Procurement.

  27. I want to know how to prepare a KPI or KRA in KPO

  28. Ahmed, each position in an organisation, has certain Critical success Factors . You could start the process with such factors involved for each job, leading you to arrive at Key Resilt Areas (KRAs) of the Job. This could lead you to Key activities for each and every position. This will give you clear picture for each position.

    You will have to involve the concerned Job holders and their respective seniors/Dept. Heads. This has to be an organisation wide activity for which the top Management has to be with you.

    Define the key performance area for a function. Allot weightage to each KPA. Total should be 100%. Define specific Targets against all KPA. Define Measurement Criteria for achievement of all targets.

    All KPAs should match with Organization Quality Goals & Objectives because that is the ultimate goal we have to achieve by framing KPAs.

  29. Hi Amit

    I have struggling to find the right set of KPIs for a small company where each employee are expected to multi task. Example, the accounts executive is required to take in sales call. What would be a good set of KPI in this case?

    Thank you!

  30. Ying, you may have a list of 5 – 10 critical factors that need to be addressed to ensure that role is completed successfully. From that list you now need to select your KPI’s. You should try to have only 1 or 2 KPI’s per role.

  31. Hello Amit
    I need to define the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for a small size IT department in a finance company.
    They have 2 developers developing an in house financial application to run their business. The department also consists of a system administartor, help desk support and an IT manager.

  45. Hi Amit,

    it is just amazing to see you reply so many people at such a regular basis. I am in dire strait currently as my boss has me to create a KRA for myself. To start with I am working in a small IT Company where I handle one office and look after team of 10 developers. I maintain the office, I make sales calls (No cold calls) Now my boss wants me to create a KRA with 5 major headings which I have is as follows:

    1. My Software Specialisation:
    a. Application Development
    b. Team Building
    c. Training
    d. Documentation Standard
    e. Time line and task sheet management
    2. Office management
    3. Partnership with Software Company
    4. Product Creations
    5. Marketing and Business Development
    6. Self improvement

    Now as far as my understanding goes I have to just put one liners in them and give my targets. but my boss wants me to write essays in them. I am not sure how do I complete this KRA.

    Can you please help me? If you want I can send you the KRA document which I have created.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Siddhartha

  46. Siddhartha, you need to figure out all kind of ‘Key’ work you do which will impact your office performance. Break-up this in your team wherever applicable such that it impacts the team’s performance. Get it more specific as you decide your work area. It is not important whether it is one line or paragraphs while writing or creating KRA. The KRA should effect the performance of the employee which indirectly lead to productivity.

    Start with defining the job responsibilities for each developer within team and prepare job profile of each and every individual. Then specify the KRA and set the goal depending on their responsibilities & profile. Goals Should be realistic, to the point, brief, and unambiguous. Complete demonstration of the ability being rated, not laced with jargon.

    If required, you can break the KRAs into KPAs – if the KRAs are large. Then develop the KPI based on the corporate / department objectives. To manage each KRA/ KPA , a set of KPI are set . KRA and hence KPI is attributed to the person who can have effect on the business results and is self measured where applicable.

    Hope this will help you in writing KRAs.

  47. Hi Amit,

    I am testing manager and my area of work is to Test mobile phones, To coordinate with clients, To manage the team etc.

  48. Amit,

    The company I am working for is one of the biggest fast food retail chains in India, still in its growth stage. As a result, the processes are not in place yet. The PMS is online but not structured.

    I have been working on the allignment of roles with the PMS but in search for perfection, my quest has gone haywire. Its been 2 months and I still am not happy with the final outcome.

    I started by defining measurables for all HODs and unique role holders. In the process I realised measurables for many departments and roles are still not in place and their ultimate deliverables have not been put in quantifiable terms. But in this I saw an opportunity of pointing out measurables for every role that the respective HOD needs to implement, but that somehow is not clicking right.

    Then I thought of putting in place a rating scale for every task/ responsibility rather than defining them in absolute quantifiable terms. But then the purpose of putting in place a framework for measuring deliverables would be lost.

    I also tried making the system foolproof by defining KRAs, followed by KPAs and subsequently by their KPIs.

    In the end I realise I am lost and confused….seriously doubting not only my analytical skills but also my reasoning and organising skills!!!!!!!!! :-)

    Please suggest me the most appropriate system to suit the above scenario. I am running out of time as I need to show my output in the next few days…

    Thanks in anticipation…
    Prateek Sircar

  50. Is it possible to list KPIs for a hospital? I am working in the quality forum of a reputed hospital and need to identify performance indicators to assess and monitor hospital service performance.

  51. Dr. George, KPIs for a Hospital to assess and monitor hospital service performance may be:

    - Ease of obtaining Appointments
    - Responsiveness of staff
    - Waiting time

  52. I am in a civil engineering construction company which is entrusted with a large project . We have our own batching plants and crusher plants.

    I am confused about setting out the KPIs
    Please guide

  53. Anil, a KPI system must be used to drive improvement. A system without outcomes creates work without creating any benefit. It is useful for any post-project review to consider the KPI scores, what they mean and if there is any relevant action to be taken.

    The purpose of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) is to enable measurement of project and organisational performance throughout the construction industry. This information can then be used for benchmarking purposes, and will be a key component of any organisation’s move towards achieving best practice.

    Once the requirement and core purpose for the KPI system has been put in place it is important to determine what to measure. There are several issues that need to be addressed at this stage:-

    - Limit the number of indicators to about 8-12; more than this and the exercise becomes onerous. The application of any system will become very difficult if there are too many measures and too much data to collect.

    - Identify key measures. The measures must be collected for a reason, if they are not used or no action is taken if they are high or low, then they are not key for the project or organisation.

    - Consider what data you are already collecting. Some of the headline KPIs, such as safety, or productivity may already be collected. It is important to check that you are not collecting data that someone already has.

    The majority of systems will have a mixture of external, KPIs and internal benchmarks. An internal benchmark will allow you to compare between your own projects, but not at the broad level.

    KPIs need to be used intelligently. Do not just consider the score, but discuss why a particular score is high or low.

    Construction companies will be able to benchmark their performance to enable them to identify strengths and weaknesses, and assess their ability to improve over time.

    Few of the KPIs could be:

    Cost and Time – Time for Construction, Time to Rectify Defects

    - Cost for Construction – Design, Construction, Operational, Client Diagnostic Change Orders, Project Diagnostic, Leader Change Orders

    - Cost Predictability – Design, Construction, Operational, Client Diagnostic Change Orders, Project Diagnostic Leader Change Orders

    - Cost of Rectifying Defects

    - Cost In Use

    MIS of all activities – Profitability, Productivity, Return on Capital Employed, Return on Value Added, Interest cover, Return on Investment, Profit Predictability, Ratio of Value Added, Repeat business, Outstanding Money, Time taken to reach final project

    - Quality
    Defects, Quality Issues at Available for Use, Quality Issues at End of Defect Rectification Period

    I am looking to develop KPI for IT Infrastructure Department. This consists of projects involving Designing, Installation & Supporting Servers, Network , Security and Desktop equipments.

  58. Dear Amit,

    Can you please guide me how to measure the KPI for school teachers? Do we measure them by the teaching hours and amount of students? What else can be accumulated to their contribution?

    Typical KPI categories include:

    - Delivery
    - Product/Service Quality
    - Service
    - Best Practice & Continuous Improvement;
    - Asset/ Service Availability
    - Customer Focus

    The sample KPIs for Catering Service Contractor could be:
    - % of user complaints due to contracted services
    - General meal uptake (Annual average number of meals sold / Average employee roll)
    - Average meal cash spend per employee
    - Subsidy or profit / Average employee roll

  140. Dear Amit,
    I have gone through your article. I had undertaken a Dissertation Project to identify KPI affecting the performance of Construction Managers. I wanted to know that can we formulate any mathematical model considering critical KPIs for HR specially Technical and managerial level and help to sustain and enhance their performance in todays recessionary phase.

  141. I am very interest in KPI’s for Material Support and Control Group, (MRP, Warehousing & Inventory, Shipping & Rec,Warranty & Claims) for support of a Aviation Department for major oil company.

    The requisitons are actually transmitted through SAP to buyers in Europe and USA for processing there.

  142. The two articles on KPI would be bolstered by first defining what KPIs are for. As “Key Performance Indicators”, what do they “indicate”?

    To this reader, they are indicators of health of business processes. A business process can be for manufacturing (of products) or transactional (for services).

    (There are many more transactional processes since there are many more service industries. Even in manufacturing companies, the majority of business processes may very well be transactional, such as those for plant maintenance, finance, procurement, transportation, inventory control, information services, etc.)

    Also, for every “effect” – in this case the “health” of a process- there is/are “cause/s” – typically developed with tools such as Ishikawa diagrams and FMEA*. When the KPI denoting the “health” is out of whack and not within expected tolerances, to put it back in shape requires identification of and information on “cause” KPI. The cause KPI can then be worked on.

    The effective use of BI/KPI in any business is the Holy Grail. Ineffective KPIs can run any business to the ground. The identification and subsequent design of presentations of KPI for routine use is therefore crucial.

    There is lot more in developing effective KPIs. Please also keep in mind that the development of effective KPIs has to be business focused. It must NOT be focused on IT. IT simply provides an enabling platform for these KPIs or so-called BI. IT – as always – is subservient to various other business functions in an organization.

    *Failure mode and effects analysis

  155. Hi anybody,
    Can someone help me with KRA in Procurement?
    What is the KRA?

  156. @Patric, KRA stands for Key Result Area. They are the results or outcomes of general areas for which a particular department is responsible. A particular job roles entails may be about 3-4 KRA’s.

    KPI stand for Key performance indicators. KPI’s are attributed to the individual job role or department. they can have effect on producitvity or business. They can be measured ( usually self measured). For, e.g KRA of H.R – Performance Management KPI= Performance Appraisal to be done once in a year atleast.

    At first the BOD (Board of Directors) decides upon the Objectives of the company and set a period specific target. This Target becomes the KRA of the CEO.
    Then it gets divided still it reaches the bottom most rung. KRA of each person is linked and fulfillment of KRA will lead to fulfillment of objective set by BOD. Hence, if one person fail it will hamper the attainment of the desired result.

    Some of the KRA in Procurement are given below with their objectives:

    IMPROVED ACCOUNTABILITY IN PROCUREMENT: To put in place and maintain appropriate accountabilities to ensure that the principles of value for money, probity, fair competition and transparency are observed by all persons in the agency undertaking procurement of goods and services

    PROCUREMENT COMPETENCIES: To develop and enhance the competencies of staff to foster a culture of professionalism and ethical behaviour in procurement and for the supply market to recognise by behaving in this manner

    STRATEGIC PURCHASING: To effectively identify and undertake the acquisition of strategic goods and services to ensure that better value for money is obtained and processes are streamlined to reduce the cost of tendering

    WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT: To develop a high-performing team by maximising the intellectual capital and professional capacity of people through deliberate and planned personal development programs that support the achievement of business objectives

    PROCUREMENT INNOVATION: To enhance and accelerate the introduction of procurement innovation to generate better buying and improve supplier access to government procurement opportunities

    COMMUNICATION & CUSTOMER SERVICE: To advise stakeholders of activities and achievements and to deliver quality and continuously improved services to customers in an efficient, effective and timely manner

    Will you help me in understanding the theories with clarity?
    Thanks
    Rakesh

  199. @Rakesh, people need to know what is expected out of them. Expectations from them are usually communicated verbally in one to one meetings or team meetings. However, as soon as they are back their day to day activities these expectations loose visibility. Key Result Areas (KRA) helps to document performance expectations.

    One has to align his day to day activities according to the defined KRA’s. Documented result areas provides a path to tread. One knows what exactly is expected out of him and can perform accordingly. KRA’s deal with results and not with day to day activities and hence more quantitative the KRA’s are the easier they are to track.

    Here is the process one may use to define a KRA:

    - Talk to individual team members, gather information
    - Identify their day to day activities and hence derive key result areas
    - Document them and allocate a timeline (could be a very small document)
    - Communicate KRA’s to the team members
    - Revisit progress of an individual on these KRA’s periodically
    - Critically review performance against each of these KRA periodically
    - Facilitate them in case of deviations
    - Observe, measure, discuss and appraise

    KRA’s help individuals align their day to day activities to overall organizational/project goals in terms of results delivered.

    Many Managers (Including HR managers responsible for writing others Goals) create KRA’s for different designations, which they can use for setting Goals and/or conducting performance appraisals.

    Knowing your Goals and writing them effectively is an all-together different game. To describe your Goals (KRAs) you need to have effective writing skills and sound knowledge of terminology. Unfortunately, some executives/ managers may not have a flair for writing and thus unable to write their Goals (KRAs). This is true for HR also. So here are some tips that will help Talent Junction users to write Goals (KRAs) from the Job Descriptions.

    A Smart Goal (KRA) is one which is:

    1.Specific : Clearly stated what to do and how to do?
    2.Measurable: States how the performance for this goal will be measured.
    3.Achievable: It can be achieved by employees if they work really hard (You can draw this conclusion by talking to employee, manager or someone who has done this job successfully).
    4.Relevant: The KRA (Goal) is relevant to the job and the performance on this goal will improve productivity of the employee.
    5.Time Frame: States a time frame to achieve the goals.
    How to WRITE SMART Goals (KRAs)?

    Here are the steps how anyone can write Goals (KRAs) from Job Descriptions:

    1.Go through employee’s Job Description. If Job Description is not updated talk to employee and his/her Manager or many be manager’s manager also.
    2.Try to find out exactly what the employee is supposed to achieve.
    3.Based on your reading and discussions, make a list of the functions and responsibilities which are critical to the employee’s job.
    4.Categorize these critical functions and responsibilities in two categories:
    -A: Which can be measured whether in numbers or percentages or yes/no.
    -B: Which cannot be measured in numbers and cannot be calculated.
    5.‘A’s are the one which can be be converted to Goals (KRAs).

  200. Hi, can you help me to build a KRA & KPI for product manager and marketing manager and with weighted percentage. Or do you have any sample or format.
    Thanks.

  201. @ Cipphra, KRA for a Product Manager could be:

    - New Product development
    - Improvement in Quality
    - Decrease in In-process rejection
    - Implementation of tools like six sigma or lean manufacturing
    - On time delivery

    A product manager makes decisions around a pricing schedule and launch bonuses relating to the new product line. The product manager will have KPI focused around profitability and portfolio contribution to the earnings.

  202. I work for a project whose goal is to improve the productivity and marketing of low income small scale farmers. What would be the KRA and the KPI for this agricultural programme that combines farmer training with capacity building for the farmers’ organization and private input dealers that sell the inputs to the farmers. The implementation arrangement of the project includes encouraging the target farmers to participate in labour intensive public works where they earn vouchers, which vouchers they then use to procure inputs from selected / authorized private input dealers who later exchange these vouchers for cash.
