Steps to Evaluating and Addressing Your IT’s Efficiency

Make Sure Your Goals, and How You’ll Measure Them, are Clearly Defined

To accomplish this, the SMART framework—where goals are designed to be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound—will be key to tracking how well your efficiency aligns with the goals you’ve set. What key performance indicators, or KPIs, are most impactful for you to track?

Establishing these factors as you move forward will help you be more successful over time.

Balance Out the Metrics

Once you’ve determined the KPIs you need to track, you must divide them into a few different perspectives. What are your IT goals regarding customer service, your business’ growth and financial outlook, and your internal processes? Identifying these data points will help you track your goals and identify what can be improved.

Make and Monitor Improvements

Whatever it is you’re attempting to do, you need to keep an eye on the appropriate data—or assign someone to do so—-as you make changes and track the results. Taking note of any improvements, identify what works and what doesn’t.
