Measures of Success

React Less, Lead Better, Improve More

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.



Measures of Success shows business leaders how.


Organizations depend on metrics for their business. Question is, are they helping people do the right things? Or, encouraging them to overreact to every uptick, downturn, and change?

In other words, reacting to noise.

Noise is present in every metric. But, it’s our reaction to noise that causes waste and stress. Too often, people don’t recognize this.

Like feeling stuck on a rollercoaster you no longer enjoy.

We do and explain things that don’t help us improve. At the cost of doing things that do. No need to be jittery about every change in a metric. Not by a long shot.
Measures of Success shows a better way to chart and manage your metrics, in any organization or setting. For your business processes and activities, you need to know what’s workingwhat’s not, and what to change. And why. Then, you can determine what to stop doingwhat to start doingwhat to keep doing.
So you can…

Jump off the metrics rollercoaster, by responding to signals.

Systematically. Sustainably.
Learn how to identify meaningful signals in a metric. To respond just right.

Or perhaps, not at all.

You’ll learn how with methods easy to understand, making it obvious what activities to do next. Loads of vivid stories and clear examples from healthcare, software companies, and more. With compelling case studies from the news and personal lives, too.

“What gets measured gets managed.“

We’ve all heard that. But did you ever learn how to manage a metric? This ain’t about gaming the system or fudging the numbers. This is about delivering real value, understood by everyone, and proven with data.
Learn a better way to manage your measures.
