Negative impressions

Reporting on tens of different metrics give one of two impressions.

Impression #1 – You are shooting in the dark. Since you can’t agree on what success means, you are just tracking and reporting everything in the hope that some of the numbers will look good on your deck to the board.

Impression #2 – You are going to cheat. Many metrics mean infinite interpretations, and something tells me that the one you are going to deliver today is not a story of failure.

Next time you are preparing a report, make an effort to avoid both.
