The Seven Deadly KPI Sins

Ignorance ~ Not knowing why you are measuring something

Greed ~ Too many measures

Stupidity ~ Having measures and targets that drive destructive behaviours

Inexperience ~ Not understanding “noise” in data and running off to fix things that aren’t really broken.

Vanity ~ Dressing up and displaying data in an incomprehensible way

Wastefulness ~ Burying the message in unnecessary analysis

Sloth ~ Not doing anything with your analysis and reports
