Task Completion Rate is a metric that defines a progress achieved on a desired task scenario with clear success criteria. Successful task scenario comprises a specification of work that you need to accomplish when working at this task – it includes a list of results to be obtained, where each result is associated with appropriate percentage (or grade) of task completion. By controlling the current level of achievements you can identify task completion rate at every point of time. For example task completion rate can be 100% when a task executer completes it successfully or 0% when this task is not started yet, or completely failed.
The grade of completeness can be associated with:
- A value of certain step or result within a task plan. For example if you have a task that contains 3 sub-tasks, then only one of these sub-tasks can worth 40% of overall task completion (the major contribution towards completion), while two other sub-tasks are valued at 30%.
- A milestone in a task completion map. For example if your task is comprised of 10 steps, then every step can be scored as 10% of completion, so when you reach the 3rd step of a task, your task completion rate is equal to 30% and so on.
