Version 6 improves the flexibility and performance of Clear Impact Scorecard by allowing users the ability to create more measure and container types.

Why is This Important?

The Scorecard 6 upgrade allows you to:

  • Build your Scorecards to more accurately reflect the structure of your organization
  • Align your Scorecard language with the language used in your organization
  • More easily visualize the connection between your Results, Programs, and associated Measures
  • Rather than strictly adhering to any specific framework, you can modify the Scorecard structure to fit any framework you are currently using.

Scorecard 6 Architecture

What’s changed?

Scorecard 5 (OLD) →

Scorecard 6 (NEW)

  1. Results always appeared at the top of Scorecards. Sorting Programs below certain Results was not possible.
  2. Performance Measures could only be linked to Programs and Indicators could on be linked to Results.
  1. Container types can be sorted in any order. Programs can be inter-mixed with certain Results and new container types can be added.
  2. Any measure type can be linked to any container type. For example, programs can have KPIs and Performance Measures or Results could have Indicators and Population Indicators linked to them. You Can use any label you want for any container.

Introducing Containers

Previously two objects could be linked directly to Scorecards, Results and Programs.  While the names of these two objects could be customized to your organization, the software enforced having just 2 of them.  The Scorecard 6 upgrade combines these two into the concept of “containers”.  Organizations can have unlimited container types with custom names to fit their needs.

A container is any intangible strategic building block that you want to measure.  You can link as many measures to a container as needed to understand it’s performance.  You can now create as many container “types” as you want to better articulate your strategy.  You can expand beyond just Results and Programs to also have “Strategies”, “Agencies”, or whatever your organization is measuring.
