Use business metrics, not HR or procurement metrics

According to Christopher Dwyer, “The true effectiveness of SOW-based projects, services and contractors can only be measured by leveraging analytics to understand how these items stack up against pre-defined (and communicated) goals, objectives, milestones, and delivery dates.” Align metrics with your business’s strategic goals. Although organizations task HR with human capital management, it is the business, not human resources, that is ultimately responsible for talent management.
