find the metrics that truly measure you


Many people find it easy to identify metrics that measure the worth of their work: salespeople have sales targets, production managers track whether inventory is delivered on time and under budget. But not all jobs or skills are so easily quantifiable, and far too many people choose not to measure at all. If you fall into this category, invent a new, innovative metric that gets at the real value of what you do. For example, if one of your critical roles is to develop your people, rather than looking at how many training opportunities you provided your team, focus on an outcome measurement, such as how many people you effectively brokered into other parts of the organization. Or if delivering innovation is in your job description, count the number of ideas generated by your team, and how many of those went on to become valuable projects.
