Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

Use ratios instead of raw quantities

Consumed => “Wealth and Fitness Secret – Ratios” by Rich Karlgaard on Forbes.

http://blogs.forbes.com/richkarlgaard/2010/12/21/wealth-and-fitness-secret-ratios/

Notice the lack of raw counts.  For example, new jobs, or for that matter, (Facebook) Likes. Ratios give context and are in turn often focused on measuring a quality, not a quantity.

In short, just because something is establish and easy to do doesn’t mean it’s the best way to do it. In fact, if you want to be ahead of the pack, and it’s the pack who’s following measurement X, then it makes sense to rethink how much you value that measurement.
