A performance indicator is an aggregated piece of information allowing the comparison of the performance of the system (work system) to the system’s objectives.

A performance indicator is defined by its name, a value domain or dimension and a procedure that describes how its value can be calculated.

Performance indicators may be included in decision frames.

The 2030 Agenda Indicators lists the indicators for the Sustainable development goals (#SDGs).
