Measuring & Analysing Financial KPIs From Business Perspect


Most people would often say and agree with this statement, "Numbers don't lie".

Financial KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) are measurable values that indicate how well a business is performing pertaining to generating revenue, profits and values. Monitoring KPIs shows a business is on its way achieving its short-term and long-term business goals.

Key Performance Indicators (a.k.a KPIs), help determine the condition and sustainability of the current business model of an organisation.

Carrying out regular review of KPIs help firms to:

  • Identify the strengths and weakness of their business organisations
  • Spot potential problems before they turn serious
  • Determine which aspects of the business are underperforming
  • Increase the firm’s competitive advantage in its market segments

All KPIs have a common goal: To keep businesses well-tuned and ready for financial success. So the key questions remain : What's behind those numbers you see ? Do they spell Growth or Danger ?
