I just read an excellent article in the weekend edition of the Wall Street Journal entitled, School Reform, Chicago Style. I thought it applicable here because the article focuses on how the collection and analysis of data is helping schools in Chicago drive some impressive results. I often ask business owners how do they know something is or is not working if you can’t measure it? Read this article for ideas on what you can measure in your business to drive performance. And remember, as with this article for me, inspiration and insight can come from anywhere.
