KPI's are great to track the performance of any dept, division, company. FP&A groups essentially have five main roles. The first two do not lend themselves easily to KPI's: annual planning and ad hoc analysis. However there are three activities that can be monitored and tracked: time to complete variance analysis reporting; time to produce scorecards; and the time it takes to derive conclusions from combining data sets, I.e. production and financial data. There are probably many more that are industry specific.
