PricewaterhouseCoopers' Trendsetter Barometer interviewed CEOs of 383 privately held product and service companies identified in the media as the fastest growing U.S. businesses over the last five years. The surveyed companies range in size from approximately $5 million to $150 million in revenue/sales.

  • 78 percent of fast growth companies use five or more metrics to track business performance.
  • 28 percent roll their financial, operational and external data into a single, strategy-driven information resource

As they develop in size and sophistication, fast growth companies tend to increase the number of corporate performance metrics they regularly use, and transition from spreadsheets to homegrown tracking systems. After this, the larger and more sophisticated companies – 28 percent in number – take the next step, integrating their financial, operational and external data into a single, strategy-driven resource for measuring business performance. These are highlights of the latest Trendsetter Barometer from PricewaterhouseCoopers, just released.
