Course overview

To stay ahead of the competition, your managers need to know how they can improve or change different areas of the business. They can do this by measuring progress toward business goals and objectives through key performance indicators (KPIs). However, to make them even more useful, KPIs can be further divided into 2 different types: leading and lagging.

By measuring progress through leading and lagging KPIs, your managers can begin to understand business conditions and trends. Additionally, the metrics can inform them if they’re on the right track to meeting business goals and objectives. It’s essential to use both leading and lagging KPIs in tandem to produce the most accurate picture of business performance.
