Performance

SIS Performance Indicators

  • SIS has a set of challenging key performance indicator targets for service delivery in order to measure our effectiveness.
  • SIS sets challenging and stretching targets based on previous years’ performance.
  • SIS aims to maintain continuous improvement from year to year with target % continually increasing.
  • If target percentage is not met the following year’s target will be set realistically to encourage and motivate improved performance.

In addition to KPIs SIS also measures customer satisfaction via surveys, feedback, case studies, and externally verified quality awards.

SIS sets challenging and stretching targets based on previous years’ performance.

Feedback is used as the main driver of continuous improvement.
