Sometimes when an organization begins a business intelligence initiative (BI) they are so excited about data visualization and data transparency in the form of dashboards that the first thing they want to do is start measuring everything. I believe that strategy comes before measures and those organizations that thoughtfully and purposefully align what they are measuring to their strategic plan achieve more meaningful long-term results from their BI initiative.
