What does a Performance Analyst do?

Performance analysts evaluate and assess systems and determine how well they perform their intended functions or outcomes. They often specialize in a certain type or category of systems – such as in the case of a building performance analyst, who completes onsite evaluations and inspects of buildings to assess their internal systems. They may perform tests or compare existing performance metrics to targeted benchmarks or standards. They identify deficiencies or areas of weakness, and summarize their findings in reports.

Performance analysts typically have at least a bachelor’s degree, often in a scientific or technical area. They should have extensive experience with common essential systems in their field or specialty area. These roles require strong project management skills, good organizational abilities, and proficiency with common office software programs.
