There aren’t too many words that can strike as much fear and loathing into the hearts of your internal customers, and sometimes your own employees as the words “Operational Measurements”. Operational Measurements often get a bad rap because of their misuse by well intended, but misinformed management. And it’s easy for your employees to view Operational Measurements as some kind of cheap trick to force more work out of them as you constantly try and force more and more production from your team. Meanwhile, your sales team thinks that you will use Operational Measurements to cloud the issue of customer satisfaction by pointing to your “great numbers” while leaving the customer very unhappy.
