Example of a scan
The actual score for this project can be seen by looking at the coloured triangle and comparing it with the dotted outline of the equilateral triangle. We look at 2 things at the same time:
- Whether the triangle is growing;
- Whether the triangle is changing shape (is it becoming asymmetrical?).
It is clear that this fictitious project mainly has a strong impact on People and, to a lesser extent, on Planet and that it has a negative impact on Profit.
Pie charts show the stocks upon which the project is expected to have a positive impact (the green pie slices) and those upon which a negative impact is expected (the red pie slices). If the impact is neutral or if there is no impact at all, the pie slice is coloured light grey.
In this example, it is expected that the project will have a positive impact on the living environment, education, safety and health stocks. A negative impact is expected on economic and political participation. The project has no impact on social participation or art and culture.
In the case of a group scan a scatter diagram is also made. This shows whether those participating in the scan are in agreement about the expected impact of the project. The narrower the bar, the more the participants are in agreement with each other, the wider the bar, the more the participants disagree with one another. The colour of the bar is determined by the average score of all the participants. If this is positive, the bar is coloured green, if negative, the bar is red. If the score is 0 the bar is pale grey.
In the example, the participants are principally in agreement regarding the impact on social participation and on economic and political participation. There is strong consensus on the impact on art and culture: there is none.
