Exploring the Performance Area Details Dashboard
In 2019, Advantage Group International introduced a business intelligence (BI) tool to improve the overall utility and insights capabilities of Advantage ReportTM. A significant revolution in our traditional report delivery, this new digital tool has transformed the experience that users of Advantage Report have been long familiar with.
Via a series of blog posts, we will provide you with tips and tricks useful for navigating the dashboards within Advantage Analytics with greater ease and agility. In this blog post, we share how to answer your most critical business questions using the Performance Area Details Dashboard. This dashboard is highly useful in drilling down to examine the specific Practices affecting your Performance Area results.
The business questions you are seeking answers to:
- Where does my performance lie in my competitive set by Performance Area and how has this changed over time?
- Which Practices are driving my Performance Area results?
Gain insight by following these simple steps:
1. Net Favourable Scores by Performance Area
In the top left corner of the dashboard, view your NF result by Performance Area in your competitive set.
- The circled marker on the chart indicates your NF result (1).
