Process Measures or Process Output Measures

« Back to Glossary Index

Measures determine whether a process or activity is achieving its goals. At every level, processes have outputs and those outputs should be measured to assure that the process is functioning as it should. In an ideal organization, company goals and measures are associated with value chains and then subdivided so that, at every level, managers are measuring process outcomes that are related to the ultimate goals and measures of the organization. If vertical alignment is ignored, it is possible that activities or processes will be measured in ways that don't contribute to the overall success of the larger process or the success of the company.
