What is this feature for
The Scorecard is used to give visibility to the adherence of results to a company's strategy through perspectives, objectives and indicators. In the Scorecard it is possible to carry out several analyses, changing the way of comparing the result and some properties of the KPI.
An example is the comparison with the last year Actual, wich helps you in situations that you wish to have a performance parameter of a certain KPI related to last year's performance. It creates a comparative result board, making a comparative analysis assertive. This feature only compares the same KPI, on the same MU, on different Management Plans. It is not possible to compare different KPIs.
Another possibility is the graphical analysis in the Scorecard's KPIs. When an indicator has the "Show Chart on KPIs" setting enabled in its property, when accessing the Scorecard's KPIs, the performance symbols (red, yellow, green and blue) give place to the chart, which allows you to monitor the indicator's evolution over the months.
Comparison with the last year Actual
There are two locals where this comparison can be done: On the KPIs and on the Scorecard.
To access the Scorecard comparison, go on the Corporate Performance module and click on Scorecard. After that, click on the default comparison of your Scorecard, at the left side of the YTD option. Then, click on the icon, on the right corner.
Select the value you wish to compare with the last year’s Actual and, at the other comparison, select the Actual (2018) option.
This option always shows the last year’s Management Plan that you are. In case you are on the 2018 Management Plan, the Actual (2017) would be shown.
This feature will not be profitable to Strategic objective and Perspectives analysis, because their results are directly linked to the KPIs results.
To do the comparison on the KPIs, access the Corporate Performance module and click on KPIs. After that, go on the default comparison option, located on the right side of the frequency option.
Select the value you wish to compare with the last year’s Actual in one column and select the Actual (2018) on the other column.
After, the system will show automatically the comparison values with the last year’s Actual.
The comparison can only be done in KPIs that remained with their frequency in a Management Plan to another.
In case that the KPI changes its frequency on another Management Plan, this comparison will not be done.
It also not possible to compare the KPIs of a weekly frequency, because the reference date of launch to the KPI changes according to the year.
