Four Steps to Effective Performance Management

Leah MacMillan, vice president of product marketing at Cognos, published a nice article on TDWI, a couple of weeks ago, called Four Steps to Effective Performance Management. In the article, she describes the four-step process that organizations should to follow to define an effective PM.

The four steps are:
- Addressing Initial Needs
- Driving Insight through BI
- Extending BI Across the Enterprise
- Advancing Your Business through PM

She finishes the article commenting what she thinks be the main benefits when you are following the roadmap proposed.

In my opinion, all the process pass through an essential issue, the alignment between the IT and the business, that I consider nowadays one of the most important steps to an effective Performance Management.
