About the KPI Dictionary 

The result of a 7 years research program run by The KPI Institute, this KPI Dictionary complements the already published KPI Compendium, which lists over 20,000 KPI examples. The novelty of The Institute's publication is based on the inclusion of more details for each KPI example and the separation of the content in two volumes: volume 1 for examples grouped by Functional Area and volume 2 for KPI examples grouped by Industry. All volumes contain a unique KPI identification number that traces the example to its file on, a KPI examples database operated by The KPI Institute.
