The KPI Institute was established in 2004, in Melbourne, Australia. At that time called eab group, it was designed as a provider of organizational performance management services in Australia, supporting clients mainly through training and advisory services. From the beginning, eab group’ solutions were based on world’s best practice methodologies and frameworks.
Drawing on the results of over five years of research in the performance management field, the launch of smartKPIs.com in November 2009 marked the beginning of a series of research programs supported by successful online platforms dedicated to KPIs, performance management discipline, strategy and Balanced Scorecard. The focus on insights from practice and rigorous research led to the repositioning of the organization into an educational and research institute.
The institute has become a global authority on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) research and education. The Institute has developed key partnerships in various regions of the world such as USA, Middle East, Europe and Asia. It has also expanded its offering to include software solutions for performance management, research products and publications.
