As architects, nearly everything we do is associated with a project. As a project-centric business, understanding which key performance indicators (KPIs) are meaningful is only half the battle. What is equally important is having a system in place that delivers real-time information, so the KPIs are accurate and actionable.
But knowing the KPIs is only as useful as your ability to believe that the data is accurate and real-time. Otherwise, you will be making decisions on conditions that existed a week or more in the past. In situations where the data is showing a problem, that means you are already a week or more late in your ability to address it.
As architects who are expected to create sustainable architecture for your clients, you owe it to yourself to create a sustainable firm first by implementing a native-cloud system that gives you real-time KPIs. This especially makes sense considering every firm in the world is now operating as a distributed workforce.
With a cloud-based system in place, you can then begin looking at the KPIs the system should provide to ensure that your firm is performing as planned.
