Result Scoring

What is result scoring?

All statuses within Commonality are powered by the status of results. All results are assigned one of the following statuses:

Accomplished

This result has been completed, try changing the target value and aim even higher.

On track

No intervention is needed, this result is on track to be accomplished by its assigned time period.

Off track

You may want to check in on the team that owns this result. Adding resources or changing the result's target value may help.

Regressed

The team that owns this result should pivot efforts immediately, this result has had a negative impact on its dependent KPI.

Not started

This result has no KPI and therefore no impact is being measured or being made.

How are results scored?

We calculate the status of a result automatically based on a few different factors:

  • The end date of the parent objective's time period.
  • The date that the result was created
  • The target value of the result
  • The value of the KPI on the date that the result was created
  • The success trend direction of the result's KPI

We use the first four values as coordinates to draw a line between where you were and where you want to get to by the end of the objective's time period.

Every time a check-in is created, we do some algebra magic to calculate the progress of your efforts based on where you are projected to be on any given date.

For a result who's KPI has the success trend direction property of "Increase":

  • If the current value of the result's KPI is above the target value of the result, the result will be updated to have the status "Accomplished".
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is below the target value of the result and above the projected value, the result will be updated to have the status of "On track".
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is below the projected value of the result and above the result's starting value, the result will be updated to have the status of "Off track".
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is below the starting value of the result, the result will be updated to have the status of "Regressed"

For a result who's KPI has the success trend direction property of "Decrease":

  • If the current value of the result's KPI is below the target value of the result, the result will be updated to have the status "Accomplished".
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is above the target value of the result and below the projected value, the result will be updated to have the status of "On track"
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is above the projected value of the result and below the result's starting value, the result will be updated to have the status of "Off track".
  • If the current value of the result's KPI is above the starting value of the result, the result will be updated to have the status of "Regressed".
