# How does the two Progress calculations for the Control KPI key result work in Profit.co?

Category: KPIs

Profit.co has progress calculation methods for the control KPI. Successful check-ins(target achieved) divided by total number of check-ins and Distance from the target, as of the check-in date.

Why this feature?

By using this feature the key result can be progressed based on the successful or unsuccessful check-in values and for Distance from the target, as of the check-in date based on the distance of the successful check-in and here all the check-in will be considered.

Successful check-ins(target achieved) divided by total number of check-ins

In this type of progression, the successful check-ins will be taken into consideration. The Progress will happen and the final calculation will be based on the number of successful check-ins .

The progress Calculation formula is,

“Successful check-ins(target achieved) / total no. of check-ins for the given target period”

For example, We have a Key result to Maintain Customer Engagement Score in between 4 to 5

If the key result is created in a quarter with the check-in frequency of Every Friday. The total number of check-ins will be 13.

So each successful weekly check-in will hold 7.69% progress.

Let's consider the check-ins happening in the table below

 Week Control type Lower Limit Upper Limit Actual Met Target? Calculation Progress % Week 1 In between 4 5 4.8 Yes 1/13=8 8 Week 2 In between 4 5 4.2 Yes 2/13=15 15 Week 3 In between 4 5 4.5 Yes 3/13=23 23 Week 4 In between 4 5 3.5 No 3/13=23 23 Week 5 In between 4 5 4.25 Yes 4/13=31 31 Week 6 In between 4 5 - No 4/13=31 31 Week 7 In between 4 5 4.5 Yes 5/13=38 38 Week 8 In between 4 5 2 No 5/13=38 38 Week 9 In between 4 5 3 No 5/13=38 38 Week 10 In between 4 5 4.5 Yes 6/13=46 46 Week 11 In between 4 5 4.6 Yes 7/13=54 54 Week 12 In between 4 5 5 Yes 8/13=62 62 Week 13 In between 4 5 4.5 Yes 9/13=69 69

Distance from the target, as of the check-in date.

In this type of progression, All the check-ins will be taken into consideration whether the check-in is successful or unsuccessful. The Progress will happen based on the distance from the target value.

Note: In this case, the 13th week progress will be the final Progress.

Scenario 1 for value type ‘at most’

The progress Calculation formula is,

100 + ( Target Value - Check-in Value) / Target value * 100

For example, We have a Key result to Maintain the Cost Per Click at most at \$1

Assuming this scenario, the following table shows how the progress calculation works in the scenario. As said earlier, here the 13th week progress will be the final Progress.

 Week KPI Control type Start Value Target (\$) Actual Progress % Week 1 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.8 120 Week 2 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100 Week 3 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.5 150 Week 4 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.75 125 Week 5 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 0.25 175 Week 6 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100 Week 7 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.5 50 Week 8 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.2 80 Week 9 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.35 65 Week 10 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.5 50 Week 11 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1.75 25 Week 12 Cost per Click At Most 0 1 1 100

Scenario 2 for value type ‘at least’

The progress Calculation formula is,

100 - ( Target Value - Check-in Value) / Target value * 100

For example, We have a Key result to Publish 5 blog post every week

Assuming this scenario, the following table shows how the progress calculation works

 Week KPI Control type Start Value Target (\$) Actual Progress % Week 1 # of blogs At least 0 5 4 80 Week 2 # of blogs At least 0 5 6 120 Week 3 # of blogs At least 0 5 5 100 Week 4 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 5 # of blogs At least 0 5 0 0 Week 6 # of blogs At least 0 5 1 20 Week 7 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 8 # of blogs At least 0 5 4 80 Week 9 # of blogs At least 0 5 7 140 Week 10 # of blogs At least 0 5 5 100 Week 11 # of blogs At least 0 5 2 40 Week 12 # of blogs At least 0 5 1 20 Week 13 # of blogs At least 0 5 6 120
