NPS survey report

NPS has been created by Fred Reichheld, Bain & Company and Satmetrix. In 2003 it has been described in Harvard Business Review in the article "The One Number You Need to Grow".

In practice, NPS conception is very simple and with new MySurveyLab functionality easy to implement. Respondent answers one question "How likely is it that you would recommend our company / service to a friend or colleague?", usually by selecting a rank between 0 - 10. People that selected 9 - 10 are called Promoters, values 7 - 8 are called Passives, and marks below 7 are called Detractors.

Depending on a selected value respondent is redirected to answer additional survey question and can describe what he/she likes or dislikes about the company or services.

Your task is to have as many Promoters as possible and at the same time as few Detractors as possible. NPS is calculated by dividing from percentage of Promoters, percentage of Detractors. It is assumed that 70% NPS is a good score.

Net Promoter Score = (% of Promoters) - (% of Detractors)
