Prioritization scores analysis is a great way to see agreement on goals and resource distribution to achieve them.

The Alignment page in Ducalis allows you to see clearly where your team has differences of opinion. It highlights disagreements in scores so you can discuss only on the areas of concern.

To define the level of alignment, we compare scores that the users assigned to a criterion and measure the scatter. Scores variation then appears in percentage.

There are 3 alignment reports:

  • Summary report
  • Detailed criteria report
  • Detailed users report

The Summary Report.

To check the summary report, go to the Alignment.

1. Numbers next to the criteria show the average alignment on the criterion of everyone evaluating it.
This allows you to see the unclear criteria—if the number is orange or red, it means that the teammates' scores are too different. This may mean that they don't understand the criterion well. You should discuss such criteria together and change their description.

2. Numbers next to the users show the average user alignment with the team on all the criteria.

This allows you to see who struggles with the evaluation—if the number is orange or red, it means that the user's scores are too different from other teammates' scores. This may mean that he or she doesn't fully understand the criteria or scores meaning, or might have a unique point of view on them. You should discuss how he or she interprets them.

3. The number at the intersection shows the user's average alignment with the team on a separate criterion.

This allows you to see if a user struggles with one certain criterion—if the number is orange or red, it means that the user's scores are too different from other teammates' scores. You should discuss how he or she interprets the criterion and scores meaning.

4. Click the cogwheel and drag the levers to change the alignment scale.

The Criteria Report.

Click show details next to the Criteria on the Summary Report page.

This report allows you to see if there are certain issues the team has evaluated too differently.

1. Hover the mouse over the number at the intersection of an issue and a criterion. There will be a tooltip with the scores each teammate has assigned to the issue by the criterion.

Orange and red numbers mean that the scores are too different and you should discuss the criterion in the context of the issue.

2. Filter the criteria by the teams to see their performance separately.

3. Click the cogwheel and drag the levers to change the alignment scale.

The Users Report.

Click show details next to the Users on the Summary Report page.

This report allows you to see if there are certain issues a user has evaluated too differently.

1. Hover the mouse over the number at the intersection of an issue and a user. There will be a tooltip with the scores the user has assigned to the issue by all the criteria.

Orange and red numbers mean that the user's scores differ greatly from the team and you should discuss the user's opinion on the issue.

2. Filter the criteria by the teams to see their performance separately.

3. Click the cogwheel and drag the levers to change the alignment scale.

NOTE: the alignment grading scales are separate for each report

The grading scales by default is:

From 0 to 35 percent - Scores' alignment is very low. You must discuss the issue and/or the criterion. The team's opinions are too contrasting.

From 35 to 50 percent - Scores' alignment is medium. We advise you to discuss the issue but as a whole the level is acceptable.

From 50 to 100 percent - Scores' alignment is high. The team has the same opinion on the issue and you can focus on other problems.
