|The NAPT KPI Project track will be offered at the NAPT Summit
The NAPT KPI project was launched in 2011 at the NAPT Summit in Cincinnati to identify best practices in pupil transportation. With a favorable membership response, the committee took the next step at the 2012 NAPT Summit to focus on the educational component of the program. Moving ahead, the goal for the 2013 NAPT Summit in Grand Rapids is to gather initial data to develop industry measurements.
We're excited to announce our KPI track for the Grand Rapids Summit:
Continuous Improvement and Quality Improvement GE — Join us for this Sunday morning keynote presentation as Ronald Frank, Global Research Lean Leader for GE Global Research Center, Niskayuna, NY, will discuss the importance of quality and continuous improvement from an "outside" perspective.
KPI Status Update — Sun. 3:30-4:30 p.m.
This spinoff workshop will discuss the yellowbus KPI collection tool, discuss what data elements will be available for NAPT members, and what we have learned to date.
Essential Concepts in Data Utilization — Mon. 9:35-10:05 a.m.
Your mission, vision, and goal statements likely already include commitments to safe, reliable and efficient transportation, but how do you quantify that and analyze your progress? This workshop will help you define, track and report your use of key performance indicators and what motivates you to implement them.
Tools for Tracking KPI's — Mon. 2:05-2:35 p.m.
Learn about the various methods for tracking data and the tools that can help you do it. From district-level to state and national, the use of various internal tracking and outside comparison tools will be discussed, both as separate entities and how integration of all three can work to your advantage.
Hands on Training & Customized Consulting — Mon. 2:45-3:45 p.m.
This workshop will consist of a variety of stations to give you a more hands-on approach to reviewing KPI definitions, collecting data, entering data into the NAPT KPI Tool, and discussing the impact and meaning of various data points. There will be a note sent to all conference attendees telling them what data they should bring from their own operation to make full use of this session.
Brief/Debrief on KPI Definitions — Tues. 11:20-11:50 a.m.
We will examine the 13 data elements collected in the initial NAPT KPI survey and begin work on analyzing new data elements and discuss the impact those elements will have on future KPIs.
Marching Orders: Next Steps in the KPI Project — Wed. 2:05-2:35 p.m.
With your support, the tools and resources that are developed from the KPI project will be presented at the 16th National Congress on School Transportation, in May 2015, with the overriding goal of benefiting the industry at large; but more importantly, it will help you improve your operations. Ultimately, you'll possess the ability to chart your district's progress year over year, and to compare your operations to others like yours, if desired. more
