Improving individuals and organizations – TKI Certifications

November 9th, 2018 Posted by Events 0 thoughts on “Improving individuals and organizations – TKI Certifications”

The Certified KPI Professional Training Course

Humans have always had a knack for measuring and heuristics. Our modern banking, commercial and trading system exists because of this instinct. Once a good idea gets rolling, we like to measure its output and analyze palpable results. Afterward, we tend to look for heuristic ways – or shortcuts, in which we can replicate that success.

However, given today’s complex business reality, with relationships between organizational entities rivaling matryoshka dolls, we’ve slowly started to drift away from heuristics and have resorted to standardization. While heuristics do have a place in the modern business world, we’ve gone from using them as primary error-fixing tools, to incorporating their underlying essence into current day solutions.

Complex challenges cannot be solved by just “winging things”. You need a logical, structured framework which allows you to quickly diagnose issues and act upon them. This is where heuristics have found a home, alongside measurements – from diagnosis tools to repair mechanisms.

In a way, we can see KPIs as modern business heuristic tools. They offer us clarity over an issue and allow us to focus on its roots, as well as provide a route for improvement. In addition, they represent a bridge between all of the individuals within an organizational entity, since it drives engagement, spurs communication and develops learning.

With these in mind, The KPI Institute has developed its Certified KPI Professional Training Course.

We draw attention to clarity and communication, by allowing attendees to share any of the challenges they’ve encountered whilst trying to implement KPIs or a Performance Management System altogether, as well as their most dire learning needs so that our trainers will always know how to approach each course and individual.

We emphasize the importance of focus and improvement, by sharing exercises, business simulations, group discussions and learning activities that challenge an individual’s thought process, so that instead of reverting to old habits, they’re presented with novel scenarios that require them to devise new pathways for solutions.

We discuss to great lengths the value that engagement and learning bring to an organization, for every single person that comprises a company’s organizational roster. An engaged workforce is more likely to be open-minded, and thus receptive to learning.

Practical benefits to joining the course

Whilst not a complete list of what our Certified KPI Professional Training Course has to offer – we can’t just spoil everything now, can we?, some of the topics you’ll be going through are the following: KPI typology, KPI taxonomy, KPI selection, KPI alignment, KPI documentation, data gathering, working with targets and data visualization.

Moreover, you’ll get to work with official TKI performance management templates, which have been used in companies worldwide to great success. In addition to this, you’ll receive customized feedback on any of your exercises, solutions or filled templates.

This is due to the fact that while it is of great importance to providing people with a means for improvement, we place an even greater value on offering them insight into the logic of certain decision-making processes or use cases, i.e. why one should or should not make use of a KPI in a given situation, or whether certain data is truly meaningful or just glorified bait.

So, if you believe our Certified KPI Professional Training Course is what you need to further develop as an individual, or your company needs to improve its results, you’re right either way. With 15 years of experience behind our brand and a team of equally experienced practitioners, we’re certain that we have a solution that’ll fit both your needs and professional requirements.

Between the 16th18th of October, The KPI Institute, in partnership with Soft Skills Consultants, held the first ever edition of our worldwide renowned course – The Certified KPI Professional, in Quatre Bornes, Mauritius.mauritius

Soft Skills Consultants (SSC) is a company whose primary objective is that of providing soft skills training to organizations and individuals in Mauritius. SSC went all the way in order to bring maximum visibility to this course, hosting workshops aimed at promoting this course, as well as ensuring it receives local media visibility.

Moreover, with their support, we organized a series of executive meetings in addition to the course, where top-ranking representatives from some of the leading companies in Mauritius had the opportunity of training under one of our foremost consultants, Andrea Minelli.

In regards to the course itself, The Certified KPI Professional – C-KPI for short, brought to Mauritius a whole new world of insight into how businesses can & should look to optimize their operations and management processes.

“If you do not have a Performance Management System in place, this is an excellent place to start, as it provides the foundation to implement a KPI Framework.” – Annick Tolbize-Manager, RCA School Rodrigues

It represented a 3-day intensive learning experience, in which attendees got the opportunity of better understanding the following:

  • Differentiating between objectives, KPIs and initiatives;
  • Understanding KPI selection in different contexts;
  • Applying best practice techniques to KPI selection and much more;

“Excellent course – A practical approach that offered me a better understanding of KPIs that will surely help us with our performance measurement and improvement.” – Priscille Rose – HR Coordinator, Medine

The course had over 20 attendees, mostly Senior Managers, HR Managers, Finance & Administration Managers, from some of the biggest companies in Mauritius, with a diverse industry background, from banking & healthcare to aviation and education.

“The course reflects clearly our business reality. It is not filled with academic theories, but easy to apply the know how gained in our day to day activities.” – Rutah Anjayla Devi -Service Manager, Hard Henry Services

Following the event’s resounding success, one of Mauritius’ biggest players – Poivre Corporate Services (PCS), requested we host another edition of our course for their holding company, given that they own several entities operating in numerous fields, such as engineering, industrial services, oil and healthcare, among others.

Poivre Corporate Services recognized the importance of having a streamlined, clear-cut, robust method of managing one’s organization, especially when it comes to conglomerates.

As a result, The KPI Institute and Soft Skills Consultants teamed up again, to host our second edition of the C-KPI course, between the 22nd24th of October, which saw 15 participants from PCS, all raring to go & learn how to better improve management practices across their multi-level holding company.
