Key Performance Indicators (KPI) are used by organisations to evaluate success and when you choose KPI’s you should follow the smart approach:

S pecific – a well defined goal that is clearly understood by everyone.
M easurable – can you track your progress towards the goal?
A greed – both employer and employee must agree on what the goals are.
R ealistic – can you achieve the goal with the resources provided?
T ime related – will there be enough time to complete the task?
