Track progression quarter to quarter 


Note: Please review the introduction to Setting Quarterly Key Result Milestones for your Annual Target if you haven't already.

In this article, we cover how to Track progress from quarter to quarter. An example for could be where the targets set per interval (ex. quarterly targets) are milestones that we need to reach, and the achievement for the intervals should not be totaled together, but rather show progression from target to target, to calculate progress.

In fact, in these cases, the most recent achieved value is the true progress towards the overall target and plan. Examples include: 

  • Stock price in $ 
  • Reducing churn percentage rate 
  • Increasing market share % 
  • Increasing weekly traffic to the website 

For these cases, selecting Track progression from quarter to quarter for how the overall key result progress should be calculated is the best choice.
