Elements at the same ‘level’ or ‘tier’ within a scorecard can be weighted.
For example, if there are three objectives under one Perspective (QuickScore) or Key Performance Area (Scoreboard), then the three objectives can have different weights. Note: the same sequence can be used for KPIs/Measures.
In this example there are three Objectives in the same tier:
- Increase Profitability
- Increase Revenue
- Reduce Sales Overhead costs
By default the weighting will be 33.3%, 33.3%, 33.3% respectively.
Highlight one of the objectives and click on the Edit tab towards the top-right of the screen.
The weight of the objective can be changed by clicking on the Weight drop-down list. Click on the Weight drop-down list.
The Edit Weight dialogue appears – it includes all of the objectives in the tier.
In this example, the weights have been changed 50%, 30%, 20%.
Any numeric value can be added in the Weight entry box, if you prefer to use percentages, you can do so. See example below.
In this example, the values 50, 30 and 20 have been entered.
Click Save to save the changes.
Click on the Overview tab and select the element above the objective. In the Data Used in Calculations box, you will see the result.
