Function documentationPerformance Values and Potential Values in the Calibration Grid Symbol

 

The calibration grid symbol displays the classification of the talent in the calibration grid based on his or her current performance values and potential values. As a comparison, it displays the history, meaning the previous classification based on the previous values. The calibration grid symbol is displayed in the following places:

  • Outside talent review meetings: in the talent profile for managers and talent management specialists

  • Inside talent review meetings:

    • in a talent's short profile

    • in a talent's business card

Prerequisites

In Customizing for Talent Management and Talent Development, you have made the following settings:

  •   Basic Settings  Attachments  

    Since the calibration grid symbols are stored as attachments in Knowledge Provider, corresponding logical and physical classes must be defined in the Document Modeling Workbench (transaction DMWB) for the HCM_TMC document area. In the standard SAP system, these settings are available.

  •   Calibration Grid  Specify Settings for Grid  

    The settings that you make here affect the calibration grid that you use for talent review meetings as well as the calibration grid symbol.

Features

  • The calibration grid symbol displays the boxes in which the talent is classified based on his or her previous performance values and potential values as follows:

    • The box in which the talent is positioned based on his or her current performance values and potential values is filled with a darker color.

    • The box that corresponds to the previous performance values and potential values is filled with a lighter color.

  • The system determines the performance values and potential values for the calibration grid symbol as described under Determination of the Valid Performance Value and Potential Value). It proceeds as follows:

    • Calibration grid symbol in the business card and short profile of a talent review meeting

      Here, the system takes the ID of the talent review meeting into account. Meaning it proceeds in the same way as for determining the corresponding values for the talent review meeting.

      Note Note

      The same logic applies to the symbols that display the trend in the calibration grid.

      End of the note.
    • Calibration grid symbol in the talent profile

      Here, the system does not consider the ID of a talent review meeting, since the calibration grid symbol does not refer to a particular talent review meeting in this case. This means that it proceeds in the same way as for determining the values outside talent review meetings.

    Therefore, the classification of a talent in the calibration grid symbol of the talent profile can deviate from the classification of the talent in the calibration grid symbol of the business card within a talent review meeting. For more information, see Determination of the Valid Performance Value and Potential Value.

Example

This example assumes that a talent has the performance value 3 and that the following infotype records of the Potential (7408) infotype exist:

Therefore, in the calibration grid symbol in talent review meeting 0001, the box of the calibration grid that corresponds to the potential value from infotype record 0002 is filled with a dark color:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

Graphic 1: Calibration Grid Symbol in Talent Review Meeting 0002

Since the system takes the ID of the talent review meeting into account in this case, it uses the potential value from the infotype record in which this ID is stored.

However, in the calibration grid symbol of the talent profile for managers and talent management specialists, the box of the calibration grid that corresponds to the potential value from infotype record 0003 is filled with a dark color:

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text.

Graphic 2: Calibration Grid Symbol in the Talent Profile for Managers and Talent Management Specialists

Since the system does not consider the ID of the talent review meeting in this case, it determines the infotype record with the highest level, thus infotype record 0003.
