We all relate to dashboards. It is in our DNA and becomes a natural tracking mechanism for measuring actuals and communicating how were are doing against goals. Don’t get me wrong, developing and deploying useful management dashboards is not an easy task but if done in the right way, it can act as a paradigm shift for many organizations.
Dashboards provide many benefits to organizations. Well-designed dashboards can provide key employees in the organization with a unified view of business critical data, assist managers to ensure activities are in sync with earlier planned goals and strategies, improve existing error prone spreadsheet based reporting practices, and finally provide deeper insights into mounts of business data being collected by various systems.
