Hi, I’m Bette Hochberger, CPA, CGMA. In today’s quickie, I will discuss business KPIs for lawyers and law firms. Lawyers and law firms are often in the dark regarding understanding their business KPIs. But having a clear understanding of these key performance indicators is essential for a successful practice.
What Are KPIs?
KPIs (or Key Performance Indicators) are metrics used to measure the success of a given activity or set of activities that a company undertakes. They can be used to track the success of a specific activity, department, or business’s overall performance. By using KPIs, companies can gain insights into where they need to focus their efforts to improve performance and achieve their goals.
Picture this: You’re the CEO of a rapidly growing company with offices in different cities. You want to make sure that each location is performing at its best, but how do you measure success? That’s where KPIs come in – they’re like the scorecard for your business, showing you the real-time metrics of how well each activity or department is doing.
By tracking KPIs such as revenue per employee or number of clients served per month, you can easily compare the performance of each office and identify which areas need more attention or resources. It’s like having a magnifying glass that helps you zoom in on details you might have missed.
