The chart in above example compares total actual monthly revenue (indicated by blue bar) against target revenue (indicated by light gray bar) and shows percentage target achieved in each month.

In this example, the target is different for each month. We can see that the targets have been overachieved in 4 out or 8 months. Even in other months, more that 90% targets have been achieved.

Use this actual vs. target chart to present value of target achievement.


Percent target achieved = (Actual revenue / Target revenue) x 100
