Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in Construction: Strategies for Selection and Presentation

May 25, 2022 - 3:00 PM (ET) - Online
Hosted by CFMA

About this Event

KPIs provide quick and focused information on critical aspects of company operations. They are primarily intended for internal users and while they provide the framework for evaluating operational results, KPIs do not usually answer the question of why the results are occurring. However, when properly chosen, they provide focused and meaningful insights into how the company is performing. This course will help further explain the use of KPIs and how you can utilize this information to present a bigger financial picture.
