Want To Calculate Your Enterprise Reporting Score? Begin By Defining Three Values
For the past few months I’ve urged you to learn how to improve Enterprise Reporting Prominence (ERP). I’ve seen plenty of interest, but so far, nobody seems inclined to ask how the calculation works. Your first step is to create three ERP score values labeled Low, Medium, and High. Here’s how I define each score value when analyzing e-news delivery for a set of 10 articles:
(1) LOW: The average number of end-user direct quotes falls between zero and two.
(2) MEDIUM: The average number of end-user direct quotes falls between three and five.
(3) HIGH: The average number of end-user direct quotes reaches beyond five.
Of course you can modify this approach and include original direct quotes from vendors, associations, and other industry sources in your scoring. But you definitely need to measure your end-user connectivity.
After deciding on your score ranges, your next step is to assign one of the three (Low, Medium, or High) to each of the 10 articles. Record the number of words in each article, then add them up to get the total number of words in your set of articles. Once you’ve done that, get in touch so I can help you determine your final ERP score!
