Project SPI & CPI

You don’t see stuff like this very often.  That’s because color grids in scatterplots are not built into Power BI.  With a little hack, we put together this color-grid scatterplot that makes it easy to interpret project performance.  Cross-filter on the scatterplot or slice everything by project owner.

Project Owner Score

This report compares the performance of project owners based on a score that is a weighted average (weighted on the number of projects) of several performance metrics, such as cost variance and work variance.  The color-grid in the dot plot allows you to quickly compare scores.
