Keep your growth on track through effective indicators

A strategic problem many businesses face is keeping their growth on track through effective indicators. In today’s highly competitive markets, business leaders need the right information and controls for their companies to thrive and grow.

Keep your growth on track through effective indicators


Is your company tracking the right indicators to drive your optimal performance?


At The Alpha Group we make certain that you decide your 10 Key Performance Activities (KPAs) and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that will keep your business performance on track to achieve growth.

So, how does this happen?

Easy, its a six step-process using the power of the peer-to-peer advisory board.


Firstly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify what is your strategic problem.

As Business Leaders some of us just don’t have the right information and controls we need to make informed, timely decisions. As a result, either our company performance is badly affected by business problems we hadn’t spotted, or we miss out on golden opportunities for business growth.


Secondly the peer-to-peer advisory board help you identify your five critical, strategic KPIs.
