Smart Business Tips
4 Smart Steps to Gauge the Health of Your Business
Conventional wisdom tells us that tracking  key performance indicators (KPIs) is the best way to gauge the health of a business -- and, in many ways, that's true. KPIs can help a CEO know whether their company is performing well, operating efficiently and meeting its  strategic goals.

The problem is, KPIs don't always tell the whole story. In fact, if you're not tracking the right KPIs, they won't tell you much about your business at all. KPIs should give you a view of the trajectory of your business and when they change, you can predict long term impact.
