Isn't defining Supplier KPI's a PAIN!!
Karthik Rama
October 18, 2019
Isn't defining Supplier KPI's a PAIN!!

Well, if it is then this video is going to help you come out of that pain.
Let's start by asking ourselves a few questions.
Q1. Is your KPI
aligned to your business objective?
Q2. Is the KPI actionable in nature?
Q3. Is the KPI controllable?
Q4. Is the KPI contractual in nature?
Q6. Is the
data for the KPI reliable in nature &
is it easy to obtain?
Well,
if you have a “YES” to many of
these questions,
then you have a good KPI. Let me know in the comments.
What else do you do to define your KPI's?

You must think the Procurement Doctor isn't good with numbers why did he jump from 4 to 6. Well the doctor wants you to give the Q5.

"
Q5. I WANT YOU TO LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS"

I want to learn from you as well. Thank you so much for hearing me out.
