Information about Adoption Metrics


Rego’s Clarity Adoption Metrics package consists of two sets of metrics: Project metrics, and Resource metrics. Project metrics measure how effectively project managers are using Clarity to manage their projects. Resource metrics measure how effectively resource managers are using Clarity to manage resources.

Metrics are scored on a scale of 0 to 5, with higher scores indicating greater adoption and use. All metrics can be viewed numerically or graphically, and can be broken out by OBS. In addition, metric data can display as a 12-month rolling history to help identify trends. Project metrics can also display by lowest / highest adoption rates for a specific resource metric or all resource metrics.

There is a variety of way to view the Adoption Metric data, therefore, Rego has made this simple by creating an Adoption Metrics object that contains multiple tabs. Each tab displays one or more of the Project or Resource Adoption Metrics. Based on the nature of the Metrics some tabs will allow the ability to use a pull down menu to select a specific Adoption Metric. There is also a Metrics trending view that pulls monthly snapshots of the metrics.

Project metrics consist of the following:
• Project Status Reporting – Measures how well PMs create and publish project status reports.
• Project Risk Adoption – Measures how well Risks are being used and managed.
• Project Issue Adoption – Measures how well Issues are being used and managed.
• Project Schedule – Measures how well PMs create tasks and keep the project schedule current.
• Project Baseline – Measures whether or not baselines exist.
• Project Zero ETC’s – Measures how well the PM assigns resources to tasks with ETCs.
