About this report

The program predictability report shows the percent of completed objectives achieved for a selected time period to gain a better understanding of the group's ability to deliver. The report displays the data in the form of a line chart by team/program with an average line across all selected teams/programs. For team objectives, teams appear on the bottom of the chart and for all other objective levels, programs appear. It is beneficial to review the report with team members during PI planning to review the team delivery versus currently planned commitments.

  • Objective Progress: ((Sum of delivered value from critical path and stretch goal objectives planned in the PI) / (Sum of planned value from critical path objectives planned in the PI)) * 100
  • All Teams: This trend line shows the average across all teams/programs of the calculation for individuals teams or programs -- ((Sum of delivered value from critical path and stretch goal objectives planned in the PI) / (Sum of planned value from critical path objectives planned in the PI)) * 100
