Online Survey Tools
Feed-back on Business Processes

You provide your Management with Dashboards at all levels of your Organization and Processes.
Good ! You are on the right track for success.

But is it enough to keep your Business Processes under control ?
Probably not.

All you can obtain from your Information Systems enters in the category of objective KPIs and give you a measurement of the Technical Quality.
You need to complete them getting feed-back from the people who execute the Processes, the Users, or obtain outputs from them, the Customers: the Perceived Quality
