Team Alignment

Available for plans: Team and Business.

Available for roles: Admin, Owner.

Part of the prioritization process is analyzing prioritization scores. Ducalis gives you the ability to view and analyze how your team’s opinions on what should be prioritized vary—whether they are in agreement or not. The Alignment reports:

  • 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.

The Default Grading Scales

From 0 to 35 percent – Scores’ alignment is very low (red). 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 (orange). We advise you to discuss the issue, but as a whole the level is acceptable.

From 50 to 100 percent – Scores’ alignment is high (gray). The team has the same opinion on the issue, and you can focus on other problems.

The alignment grading scales are separate for each alignment report

There are 3 alignment reports:

  1. Total alignment report.
  2.  Users’ alignment report.
  3. Criteria alignment report.

The Total Alignment Report

To check the summary report, hover over to the left-side menu and click on Reports. Then, from the dropdown list, click on Total Alignment.

  1. Numbers next to the users show the user’s average alignment with the team on all the criteria. This allows you to see who struggles with the evaluation.

Orange and red numbers next to a user’s name mean that the user’s scores differ greatly from the team, and you should discuss the user’s opinion on the issue.

  1. The number at the intersection shows the users’ average alignment on a separate criterion. This allows you to see which user evaluated a certain criterion more differently than others.

Orange and red cells mean that the users’ scores differ greatly from each other, and you should discuss the users’ opinions on the issue.

  1. Click the cogwheel and drag the levers to change the alignment scales.
