Building a KPI Dashboard to Track Progress with Key Initiatives

Case Synopsis -

We seek to enhance the work of our over 30 programs by developing a dashboard of Key Performance Indicators that can integrate program output/outcomes information with budget information to provide a comprehensive picture of program performance to staff and agency leadership. Our goal is to use this partnership as a springboard for a fully-functioning KPI dashboard that can inform our agency’s efforts to better serve community members by identifying program strengths, challenges, and potential risks.
