Effectively Managing the Performance of your Team with SharePoint 2010

Trying to meet pre-defined objectives of upper management and making sure each team member is accountable for specific tasks can be tiring. Services within Microsoft SharePoint can help everyone in your organization make complete and informed decisions that align with company wide objectives. As you already know, scorecards, dashboards, and KPIs can help drive accountability. Integrated analytics also help employees move quickly from monitoring information to analyzing it and, when appropriate, sharing it throughout the organization.

PerformancePoint Services make the above possible with its new enhancements in SharePoint 2010. Here are just three ways PerformancePoint can help you effectively manage your team and company:

  1. The KPI Details report is a new report type that displays relevant information about KPIs, metrics, rows, columns, and cells all within one scorecard. This simplifies reporting and makes it easier to comprehend when compiling analysis points of data.
  2. Scorecards have been enhanced to make it easy for you to drill down and quickly access more detailed information. You can also sort, filter, and view variances between actual and target values to help you identify concerns or risks.
  3. The Decomposition Tree is a new visualization report type available in PerformancePoint Services. You can use it to quickly and visually break down higher-level data values from a multi-dimensional data set to understand the driving forces behind those values. The Decomposition Tree is available in scorecards and analytic reports and ultimately in dashboards.
