What is it?
The Strength Score helps you quickly understand which skills are your strongest and which have most opportunity for improvement. The idea is to use data from the three steps of the check-in (team member, assessor, joint review) to differentiate between skills where the final level is the same.
How is it calculated?
The Strength Score is given as a score out of 100 where 100 is the strongest and 0 is the lowest score. It is calculated by combining the delta between the required level of a position and the three scores. We then add a constant so that we can calculate it as a score out of 100 rather than between -3 and +3.
Worked Example 1
The position Design Manager has a requirement of level 4 of the skill Communication. During the a check-in the following levels were chosen:
Team-member: Working towards (delta -1)
Assessor: Meeting (delta 0)
Joint review: Meeting (delta 0)
Total delta = -1
Adjusted delta (+3) = 2
Strength Score = 33 ((2/6) *100)
Worked Example 2
The position Engineering Manager has a requirement of level 3 of the skill Software design . During the a check-in the following levels were chosen:
Team-member: Exceeding (delta 1)
Assessor: Exceeding (delta 1)
Joint review: Exceeding (delta 1)
Total delta =3
Adjusted delta (+3) = 6
Strength Score = 100 ((6/6) *100)
The Future of Strength Score
Strength Score is very much an experimental feature. While it can be useful in many cases, it isn't perfect. In the future we will be iterating on the idea of providing deeper insights by supplementing the final check-in score with other data.
