And when the recycling bin is filled to capacity, the leftover sweets are replaced by fruit and promises of restraint, and the last of the house guest bedding has been laundered, it's time to take stock and face the new year.
In that spirit, I offer a handful of new key performance indicators (KPIs) - a few metrics that come from that deep feeling you get when you're home from the holiday frivolity, nestled in front of the fire, and are ready to set yourself some more lofty goals. I offer these as counter points to the datapoints of yore.
So wipe off a corner of that wall-sized whiteboard and make a little list for yourself where you can track the metrics behind the real meaning of business - beyond the mere tallying of profits. I invite you to monitor:
Belated Happy Holidays and here's to a new year filled with happy, delighted, loyal customers. That's what really counts.
