The KPI Institute examines government performance worldwide in latest publication

February 23rd, 2023 Posted by Publications, Research 0 thoughts on “The KPI Institute examines government performance worldwide in latest publication”

Government performance looks different today due to the changes that took place in the world in the past two years. The 24th edition of Performance Magazine offers deep dives and practical insights into new developments, strategies, trends, and transformations in the public sector.

The issue highlights findings from The KPI Institute’s Government Service Index Report 2022, a pragmatic review of public service performance in the post-pandemic era that covers seven world regions, 66 countries, five dimensions, and 32 indicators.  The data were analyzed according to five dimensions: adaptability, talent, digitalization, governance, and impact.

In the cover story, “The future of public service: key trends in strategy and performance management,” Dr. Hisham Ahmad Kayali, a strategic and performance management specialist in the UAE, wrote about what the future of public services should look like. The other articles readers can find are:

  • “How the COVID-19 pandemic shaped political governance”
  • “Strategic approaches on the use of digital tools and data to improve the delivery of public value”
  • “Web 3.0: the next frontier for e-government services”
  • “The United Arab Emirates: the world’s leader in government services”
  • “Making an impact: how the Netherlands promotes the general welfare”

The latest Performance Magazine also addresses today’s most pressing questions related to government performance: How can a motivational culture impact the performance of public servants? What is important in measuring the performance of public services? How can public entities better communicate strategies to citizens?

By drawing on The KPI Institute’s 19 years of experience in performance management, Performance Magazine provides its readers with prime resources, industry updates, interviews, case studies, expert recommendations, and global perspectives on strategy and performance management. The magazine covers strategy planning, strategy execution, employee performance, benchmarking, data analysis, and data visualization.

Readers can access industry updates and exclusive insights into becoming state-of-the-art professionals and high-performance organizations from subject matter experts, seasoned consultants, practitioners, business leaders, academicians, and research analysts.

New TKI index reveals government digitalization rankings

February 23rd, 2023 Posted by Research 0 thoughts on “New TKI index reveals government digitalization rankings”

The United States ranks first worldwide in embracing digitalization to improve the growth and well-being of society, according to The KPI Institute’s Government Services Index 2022.

With a pillar score of 0.9059, the US emerged as the top performer in four out of five indicators:  government procurement of advanced technology products, availability of latest technologies, cost of redundancy dismissal, online e-participation, and e-government development.

Norway topped the list in terms of fixed broadband subscriptions and came second overall in the digitalization dimension. The other three frontrunners in digitalization are the Netherlands, the United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.

“The pandemic has prompted a quantum leap into online and digital environments that governments worldwide need to adapt to. A ‘digital access for all landscape’ has become the new normal in the post-pandemic world. As part of this landscape digitally empowered governments need to secure broader access to digital connectivity, apply human centric design approaches in both digital and physical environments, develop robust digital data infrastructures to ensure smoother operations,” the report states.

The Government Services Index 2022, a pragmatic review of public service performance in the post-pandemic era, covers seven world regions, 66 countries, five dimensions, and 32 indicators. Apart from digitalization, the four other dimensions in which countries are assessed are adaptability, talent, governance, and impact.

Adaptability refers to “the ability to adapt to changes to develop a flexible public service apparatus” while governance “reflects on the public services as an enabler of the government to implement its policies and provide key services for the population.” Talent examines “how learning and knowledge are built inside the public services environment, as well as to the quality of talent available on the national labor market.” Governance examines “the public services as an enabler of the government to implement its policies and provide key services for the population.”

“With the advent of smart devices, sensors and drones the number of ‘machines,’ or otherwise ‘computers’ has exploded. It thus becomes a mission of the highly digitized government to increasingly look into encouraging human interactions with such physical technology so as to reduce redundancy and foster new labor opportunities. The latter would have to be tied into growing IT talent, moving towards having human resources managing code environments and systems, technological robots and devices, setting standards, providing security and supporting implementation.”

Implementing the balanced scorecard system: expert insights, resources, and advisory

February 15th, 2023 Posted by Courses, Research, Webinar 0 thoughts on “Implementing the balanced scorecard system: expert insights, resources, and advisory”

In 1992, Robert S. Kaplan and David P. Norton introduced the balanced scorecard (BSC) to the private sector as a method for measuring performance beyond financial outcomes. This tool reflects the four major dimensions of an organization: financial, customer, internal processes, learning, and growth.

According to Kaplan and Norton, BSC translates a company’s strategic objectives into coherent performance measures using a comprehensive framework. Moreover, they believe that BSCs can lead to “breakthrough improvements” in the areas of product, process, customer, and market development.

In her article titled “The Balanced Scorecard: Outsmarting design and implementation traps,” Marcela Presecan, head of research, explained the 10 areas that must be examined before using BSC in an organization: strategy drafting, management identity, bureaucracy, employee perception, communication without understanding, lack of common vocabulary, getting over the experimental scorecard, standardizing balanced scorecard design, adapting to the business environment, and commitment of the organization. “When implemented with its full potential in mind, the balanced scorecard is one of the best reflections of an organization’s contribution to the real operating environment,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Manoj Dubey, a consultant at TKI, argued in an article that the concept of BSC must be revisited. “The perspectives of BSC, especially internal processes and learning and growth, should evaluate the quality aspects of an organization in Industry 4.0. It should ensure that strategy formulation, strategy execution, and performance measurement system are aligned to new technologies,” he wrote. “A traditional approach of BSC leads to fixed or orthodox KPIs which are not relevant in today’s technological scenario. The concept should revolve around improving processes using the latest IT; this includes having new KPIs.”

To get more perspectives and information on BSC, check out this specially curated resources.



Understanding the components of the Balanced Scorecard System – Following a performance management process, the final step regarding a company’s key performance indicators (KPIs) after data gathering is reporting and decision-making. It is crucial that this step is done correctly, as it has an important impact on how organizations utilize KPIs to inform decisions. The focus will be on understanding proper reporting guidelines, along with using business analysis techniques for better decision-making and improved initiatives for performance enhancement.

Dr. Keith Clinkscale: How the Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism Industry Survives Post-pandemic

October 5th, 2022 Posted by Press release, Research 0 thoughts on “Dr. Keith Clinkscale: How the Hospitality, Travel, and Tourism Industry Survives Post-pandemic”

The KPI Institute recently interviewed Dr. Keith A. Clinkscale, the Strategic Planning and Performance Management Director at Palm Beach County, Florida, USA, to find out how the hospitality, travel, and tourism industry has been recovering from drought during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here is an excerpt of the interview, which will be published in the next issue of Performance Magazine – Print Edition.

TKI: Can you share any “legacy” management practices that have lost their relevance in recent years? 

Dr. Clinkscale: Our recognition of operating in “silos” is driving more team collaboration. Some of the legacy practices in government were about “staying in your lane.” Many departments and organizations develop vertical expertise. Sometimes, they do it without input or knowledge of what is happening to their left or right. The trend is to move forward, collaborate, team up across disciplines, and generate more creative solutions through diverse and different perspectives.

TKI: What are your major challenges in managing performance? 

Dr. Clinkscale: One of the major challenges in managing performance is busy people. Sometimes people think they are too busy to manage performance. However, they are too busy not to measure performance. Taking a deep breath and looking at the data can position organizations to do the right thing based on data. Repeatedly convincing them of this can be a challenge.

TKI: What does the corporate performance management system of the future look like in the hospitality, travel, and/or tourism industry? 

Dr. Clinkscale: In the hospitality, travel, and tourism industry, the future of corporate performance management systems will make tracking trends over five years faster and easier.

We need to see how people respond to travel, hotel stays, and vacation activities. It is essential for us to understand what people value, and we need this information quickly, easy to decipher, and frequently as things change every day.

The Key to Developing a Powerful Data Strategy [Excerpt]

September 12th, 2022 Posted by Research 0 thoughts on “The Key to Developing a Powerful Data Strategy [Excerpt]”

Editor’s Note: Below is an excerpt of an article written by Islam Salahuddin, a Business Research Analyst at The KPI Institute. “The Key to Developing a Powerful Data Strategy” is originally published in the 22nd PERFORMANCE Magazine – Printed Edition.

Amidst the buzzing world of data, companies may find themselves directly diving into analytics due to the fear of falling short and missing out. However, many resources can be spent on catching up on the race but end up with no real results.

That happened to 60-85% of big data projects, which IBM reported to have failed because they focused solely on technology. IBM added that the projects did not have a data strategy and a data-centric culture supporting  business objectives. 

Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s MIT Technology Review Insights survey of 357 business leaders and decision-makers in July 2021 has revealed that only 20% are implementing a data strategy. While 30% of the respondents have a data strategy in place, they believe it still has gaps.

What Makes Executing a Data Strategy at Scale Difficult

According to 42% of MIT’s respondents, the main challenge for implementing a data strategy is access to “more sources of data, including demographics, competitor, and geospatial information.” Thirty-four percent admit they need help with extracting meaningful insights from their data, while some believe they need “better tools and infrastructure for data storage and analytics.”

In the survey’s report, “in unpredictable times, a data strategy is key ,” says Ishit Vachhrajani, Enterprise Strategist at Amazon Web Services,  emphasizing that all the challenges mentioned by the respondents can be blamed on “cultural obstacles” within their organizations.

“We talk a lot about technology, but one problem we hear from leaders is overly centralized, HIPPO-based decision-making that stands in the way,” Vachhrajani said. He also blames the challenges to governance structures that are no longer effective in bridging people who understand and work with data and frontline employees involved in decision-making and customer interaction.

In the same report, Jonathan Lutz, Director of Technology at Aquiline Capital Partners, describes the implementation of a successful data strategy as an “all-hands effort.” He recommends strong support from the top and buy-in across the organization.

For Vachhrajani, a successful data strategy is driven by leaders who invest in equipping people with the right skills and adopting technology across the company.

Four Business Intelligence Trends in 2022

August 11th, 2022 Posted by Certification, Courses, Research 0 thoughts on “Four Business Intelligence Trends in 2022”

Editor’s Note: “Four Business Intelligence Trends in 2022” is an article written by The KPI Institute’s Research Analyst, Brian Kiprop. This piece is originally published in the 22nd Performance Magazine – Printed Edition.

As the year progresses, entrepreneurs and managers are developing growth strategies as they establish data-driven cultures in their companies. Business intelligence assists in making data-driven decisions by utilizing data infrastructure, tools, and best practice benchmarks. Many businesses can identify new opportunities by having a wide view and utilization of data. This could spark change, eradicate inefficiencies, and adjust to market changes.

To determine the trending scientific business intelligence concepts for 2022, we conducted secondary research by collecting recent publications from the Scopus engine, the largest database of highly influential scientific publications. In 2022, there are 45 documents from a range of disciplines; computer science (28), Engineering (22), Decision Sciences (11), Social Sciences (11), Mathematics (6), Business and Management (5), Energy (2), Materials Science (2), and Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (1). 

Since all 45 documents have been published this year in well-recognized journals like Springer and Emerald, we exported the data for analysis to the latest version of Voss viewer software released this year. Voss viewer software is a data visualization tool developed at the Center for Science and Technology Science at Leiden University. 

Our results from a keyword analysis show four keywords (concepts) predominant in up-to-date publications of business intelligence by researchers in 2022. They include business intelligence, information analysis, artificial intelligence, and decision making. 

Business Intelligence

As a standalone concept and the most occurring keyword (32 instances) in our research, business intelligence is an attractive area of interest for businesses and researchers. Business intelligence enables companies to make fast decisions by understanding historical and current data in a business context. These will promote better performance, assess customer behavior patterns, analyze competitors, and identify market opportunities. 

When designing business intelligence tools, IBM suggests that companies adopt an easy-to-operate business intelligence analytical solution, integrating data sources from different platforms and understanding capabilities like artificial intelligence and machine learning before implementation. 

Microsoft uncovers four stages that business intelligence undergoes, from raw data to reports and insights. Step 1 involves data collection, followed by spotting patterns in the data. The third step focuses on visualizing the data, while the last step concerns taking action on findings in real time. 

Information Analysis

The information analysis concept has 16 occurrences across our literature review. Information analysis is known to be part and parcel of intelligence gathering to influence firm decisions. After gathering the business data, assessing data sets to provide insights is crucial for deciding the actions to take from them. Data can then be processed using a different range of tools, and some of the major software are Microsoft Power BI and Tableau. 

The tools for data analysis usually consisted of dashboards, visualizations, data mining, Extract Transfer Load, reporting, and Online Analytical Processing. However, the most popular among users are visualizations and dashboards.

Artificial Intelligence 

Artificial intelligence refers to systems and machines that draw knowledge from previous experiences, adapt fresh inputs, and conduct human-like activities. In our study, we found artificial intelligence to have four keyword occurrences. 

According to Harvard Business Review, three types of Artificial Intelligence relate to solving business needs. The first one, process automation, enables administrative tasks like data transfer through emails to be updated in the recording system. The second is cognitive insight, which utilizes algorithms to determine patterns in large amounts of data and generate insights. Lastly, cognitive engagement comprises intelligent agents and chatbots that respond to customer inquiries. 

Decision Making

In our findings, decision-making had a keyword occurrence of five across all 45 papers. Decision-making is an essential outcome of collecting business intelligence. Many companies want to make better decisions concerning their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats within their business environment. 

In Minggao Yang’s paper on the influence of business intelligence on the financial performance of innovative companies, the author finds a direct correlation between business intelligence and business performance, thereby confirming that data-driven choices influence business profitability positively.

Managers and founders looking into expanding business intelligence capabilities to identify and act on sustainable and profitable opportunities could benefit from understanding the four emerging concepts in business intelligence. As collecting business intelligence requires basic skills in analyzing data, one can consider taking The KPI Institute’s Certification in Data Analysis to build or upgrade their data analysis skills.
