D1. Creating KPIs and Dashboards

Speaker(s): Jennifer Elder
NASBA field of study: Business Management & Organization - Non-Technical (1)

“You can’t manage what you can’t measure.” But exactly what should you measure? Creating key performance indicators (KPIs) is like the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Too many and no one pays attention. Too few — or the wrong ones — and you don’t achieve your goals. But, pick just the right combination and it’s magic. Connect to the inner workings of your operations by exploring a proven process for selecting valuable KPIs.

D2. The Current State and Trajectory of the Minnesota Economy

Speaker(s): Ronald Wirtz
NASBA field of study: Economics - Technical (1)

Learn about short- and long-term economic trends in Minnesota through a range of metrics and explore the role current labor force trends will play in future economic growth. This session uses interactive survey technology to (anonymously) poll the audience about recent activity at their firms, providing real-time insights on industry trends in hiring, labor availability, wages and a 2020 outlook.
