Integrating Key Performance and Key Predictive Indicators for Risk Control

You live in a high risk world. You want to increase control of Operational and EHS Risk where possible, but …

Are Key Performance Indicators Enough?

Part Three of our four-part Leadership Series addresses the importance of key performance indicators, often called KPIs from two perspectives – from an historical point of view, and then from the perspective of looking forward using key predictive indicators. As two sides of the same coin, each contributes to increased Operational and EHS Risk control.

Great leaders help organizations see risk differently than in the past, creating better future outcomes. The role of every leader, at all levels and times, is to “Challenge the Green and Support the Red” – encouraging employees and contractors to highlight, prioritize and control real issues and risks. In more than 35 years of working with energy and chemical boards and corporate officers, we’ve discovered that most companies have an incomplete view of risk and often don’t know how to increase control over that risk. While many use key performance indicators as a historical view to performance, with some even having implemented sophisticated risk registers, very few understand the concept of key predictive indicators, let alone their application.

Pilko & Associates brings you this important Grey Paper, in which you’ll discover the appropriate use of both types of KPIs through:

  • Discovering the difference between key performance and key predictive indicators
  • Understanding blind spots and consequences
  • Blending performance and predictive indicators for a complete risk view
  • Introducing five steps to move forward in implementing and integrating both KPI types
