KPIs are characterized by being:
- Measurable: If it is not a measurable variable, than it is not a KPI.
- Accessible: The benchmark set must be based on realistic targets for what operational success or failure represents.
- Specific: In terms of goals, it needs to be based on concrete actions and be well defined.
- Important: These benchamrks must have relevance for the business, monitoring inconsequential data is a waste of effort.
