After over a year of building ICANN's management discipline and solidifying our planning cycle, I am pleased to announce that today we've published a beta version of the ICANN Beta KPI Dashboard which you can find here: https://www.icann.org/progress.

The Beta KPI Dashboard, in addition to the Quarterly Stakeholder Calls that have been in place since the start of FY15, allow us to regularly report on progress made against ICANN's strategic and operating plans that the community have helped create. We established the Quarterly Stakeholder Calls and the KPI Dashboard to allow anyone to stay informed on ICANN's activities and to help take the reporting out of ICANN Meetings so we can use this valuable time for more robust discussions.

The beta KPI Dashboard is aligned to the five objectives and 16 goals per the Five-Year Strategic and Operating Plan, and contains over 40 KPIs with data as of June 2015.

This is a tool I use with ICANN's management to help bring clarity to discussions and track trends over time, and I am very pleased to be able to share this with you, so that you also have visibility of ICANN's work and can help keep the organization accountable.

The Dashboard is a beta version, which means we are asking for your feedback to help us track the right KPIs and set the right targets. If there is something you don't agree with or doesn't quite make sense, please send your questions or comments to: dashboard-feedback@icann.org.

There will also be a session at ICANN54 in Dublin covering more on the beta KPI Dashboard.
