    By identifying the critical performance indicators within your company’s business and operating system. Successful organizations utilize voice of the customer, voice of the business, and voice of the processes data which drive customer satisfaction, business performance, and process capability and effectiveness. These quantatative and qualitative measures must be determined and agreed upon to develop scorecards and to identify performance baselines for management to drive the “current state of business to the future state” of what the business and organization wants to achieve.
