VLOOKUP vs. Reports

I have created a training checklist template that I am planning to copy as new for each new manager we hire (upwards of 100). I am currently using a Report to pull data from these checklists regarding the managers & their training progress, and will need to roll-up this data in a variety of ways for different program stakeholders, HR, VPs, Finance, etc. I do not see a way to manipulate a Report (e.g. use COUNTIF to sum up all new managers in a certain region), or VLOOKUP from the Report I have already created to another sheet. I have spent a lot of time crafting template functionality, and really hope there is a solution for my roll-up issues. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
