Strategic Insights, in the Skilljar dashboard, compares your organization’s training data against other Skilljar customers and industry trends. You can also use this page to compare your current metrics against your own previous data over the last 12 months. These metrics provide valuable insight into training performance that can be used for reporting as well as to improve your training curriculum. Comparing your training against your peers can lead to smarter key performance indicators and show your leadership where your program is compared to the industry.
Take a tour of Strategic Insights with our interactive lesson here. You can also read more about your Skilljar dashboard analytics at Dashboard Analytics 101.
Note: All customers will have the ability to compare their data to Skilljar's Global benchmarks. Enterprise and Professional customers will have access to additional filters that show benchmarks for companies of different sizes and maturity.
You can access the Strategic Insights page from your Skilljar dashboard, by expanding the Analytics header on the left and selecting Strategic Insights.
|Note: Our Strategic Insights Benchmarks are built with sample sizes of 100 organizations or above.|
Our Strategic Insights metrics are an aggregation of data from all of our customer’s training sites and are used to create success standards across the industry. Strategic Insights is updated monthly and compares your organization’s training to other Skilljar customers, using three different segments:
- Skilljar Global - the global average of all Skilljar customers.
Learner Audience Size - based on the yearly number of learners. This is broken into three groups:
- Small: Under 1,000 learners
- Medium: More than 1,000 learners
- Large: More than 10,000 learners.
Program Age - based on the time since your training program’s launch date. This is broken into three groups:
- Less than one year.
- More than one year.
- More than three years.
When you first access the Strategic Insights page, Skilljar Global will be the default view. Select the header and then the metric and size you’d like to view to see the other segments.
Note: All customers have the ability to compare their data to Skilljar's Global benchmarks. Additional benchmarks, such as audience size and program maturity, may also be available depending on your subscription plan with Skilljar.
If you are unsure of which features are included in your Skilljar subscription plan or are interested in upgrading plans, please reach out directly to your Customer Account Manager for assistance.
Strategic Insights Metrics
There are three metrics within the Strategic Insights page, which are used as benchmarks to compare your data against other Skilljar customers' averages:
- Average completion rate.
- Average number of enrollments per learner.
- Average Session time per learner.
You can compare your own averages against these benchmarks for the last 30 days and see how you’re trending along those same metrics for the previous 12 months.
You can view your averages across your organization as a whole or filter by specific domains by selecting the Domains dropdown, and the domain name(s) of your choice. This is especially useful if you have varying objectives and audiences for different domains.
To go back to the default view, select Reset Filters.
This tab shows how many learners have finished a course within 30 days. It shows the latest trend in the gauge chart and how this metric is trending for the past 12 months.
