Performance Dashboards

Valuation Metrics & Performance Dashboard Elements – Rolling 12 Month Graphs

Today’s blog will introduce you to the 12-month rolling graphs and performance dashboard elements.

Rolling 12 Month Graphs

Year-to-Date (YTD) financial statements are almost useless until the 4th quarter. Almost all financial software programs have YTD as their standard. A much more effective tool is a 12-month rolling history which can also be used to create a 12-month budget monitor.

A 12-month rolling metric tracking system can work on most performance metrics. It works by adding up the 12 months data and then insert that data point monthly into a graph or other time basis. For example, if you have a 12-month rolling point and want to add this month (say June) then you add this June into the sum and remove last June’s number.

With a 12 month rolling metric any change in slope is significant because a current month replaces a past year month. Any change represents a change in the month’s activity rather than waiting for YTD to get to the 4th quarter.

Valuation – Performance Metric

It is recommended that a business valuation is done every two years. With my nine methods and calculations, it can be used as a metric for management performance.

  • Are the net assets improving?
  • Is the cash flow better?
  • What impact does that have on the market value method?

If the net cash flow is increasing, the statistically projected method will show a rise. I discuss these nine valuation concepts in my book. “Business Valuation Principles Made Easy with How to Increase Value Financially.”
