As countries and economies are recuperating from the unfortunate turn of events related to COVID-19, organizations have begun restarting their former modus operandi. For educational institutions like The KPI Institute, this entails bringing back face to face (F2F) courses.face to face

Whilst live online courses bring numerous advantages and have become one of our most popular methods of acquiring an internationally-recognized certification, we do miss the genuine human connection that stems from seeing one another live, in person.

As a result, starting with August, our live, face to face courses will experience a resurgence, in Malaysia.

However, with great burden comes great responsibility. In order to shoulder the efforts of the Malaysian government, healthcare system and all of its citizens, there are certain rules of conduct that must be respected, if you wish to join one of our F2F courses:

  • There are no restrictions regarding the total number of participants, however, each table will only feature 3 participants
  • All participants will be seated at least 1m apart from each other
  • Table rows will be spaced at least 2.5m apart
  • The KPI Institute will prepare temperature scans, contact tracing, masks, hand sanitizer, and other required consumables
  • The maximum number of trainees allowed in a face to face training session is as detailed in the Allowable Cost Matrix (ACM), depending on the size of the training space and social distancing rules: max no. of participants = training space (in m2)/4
  • Meals, including refreshments, must be pre-packed and eaten at the participant’s individual seating, in the training facility
  • All the participants need to follow the Standard Operating Procedure

Online learning has been around for quite some time, however, 2020 has made it a mainstay of the educational industry. People need information & knowledge, and with the advent of greater and more advanced technology, companies flocked to the online environment in order to meet this demand.c-kpi

We, at The KPI Institute, have been delivering a series of online courses, for many years now. Nevertheless, when we saw the disruption caused by this year’s unfortunate events, we knew we had to step up our game and embrace the newfound reality of online learning. As we stepped deeper and deeper into this world, we found a great number of people, ready to join us in this journey.

As a result, we have increased our live online course offer fourfold and began localizing several of them in Arabic, French or Spanish, with a few other languages to follow.

However, even though we’ve noticed a substantial increase in interest for our courses in general, one of them stands taller than the rest – the Certified Key Performance Indicator Professional (C-KPI) course.

If you’re someone that in any way has to deal with KPIs or performance measurement indicators, as some people call them, and you’re uncertain how to go about managing this process, we’d be delighted to help you out. Our C-KPI course is designed to help you understand KPI measurement challenges and provide the most appropriate ways of addressing them.

Did you know?

The KPI management process includes actions such as: selecting KPIs, documenting them in a standardized template, optimizing their activation and data gathering process, embedding them into scorecards & dashboards, crafting a KPI implementation plan, creating a value driver concept map and KPI reports.

That’s not even all of it, but we can go further in-depth during the course!

As companies look to attain a more structured approach to managing their processes and performance, KPIs offer that opportunity, provided they are managed properly.

Are KPIs really booming?

Short answer – yes. Long answer? Well, we’d rather show you. Here’s our C-KPI calendar for the next upcoming weeks:

Even though we’ve got quite a busy schedule ahead of us, our doors will always be open to anyone who wants to join. Education is knowledge and knowledge is power, but not the sorcery kind of power. What we endow our attendees with is the magical ability to bring improvement into existence, by virtue of skill, focus, the power of will (and information, sprinkled all over).

Managing a business is not an easy feat. We understand this, which is why we’ve made it our mission to help those who want to see their organization succeed against any challenges, whether internal or external.

If there’s any doubt in your mind about the utility of a process, the reasoning behind a decision, or the fairness of a choice, join us, so that we may provide an answer to your queries.

Don’t forget – improvement is just one step in front of us; why not tread forward?
