This workshop will be heavily focused upon your own experiences. Our facilitator, Shaun Davis, from the Australian Institute of Management is in love with KPIs and with his encouragement, we will develop our understanding of what makes a good KPI and how these can help with planning and development of your facility.

This workshop will take an objective look at the range of KPI’s that facilities use to measure performance and how those are used for reporting, planning and ongoing development.
