Growth is more complicated, as it takes into consideration last year's performance in the race. This is best demonstrated with an example for a single update.
If this is the 4th score update of the competition, the growth score is calculated based off of all teams score from the 4th update LAST year. The team who beats their 4th update from last year by the biggest margin is assigned 110 points, the team who does the worst compared to last year's 4th update is assigned 10 points. The rest of the teams are assigned points within that range, according to how close they are to the best team.
To further clarify, only points compared to last year matter in growth. The number of clients, people, or slots make no difference - unless it helps improve your actual point total on each update compared to last year.
By that explanation, only the last update would matter when determining the winner correct? Or are the growth winners calculated for every update, then averaged at the end of the competition?
Seems silly to even update that stat if only the last update makes a determination on points awarded.
That's true, but the point of having a running total is so teams know where they stand, and how they compare to other teams.
No point only being told at the end you had 60% conversion, while everyone else had 75% - if you know now, there's time to work on it.
