6 Best Practices for Creating Effective Dashboards
Dashboards are an effective tool for distilling data into actionable insights; still, they’re often an overlooked and underutilized tool. Well-planned dashboards can align your organization’s efforts, speed up decision-making, track performance outcomes, and increase ROI. Yet too often mistakes are made in the actual creation of dashboards—many times at the expense of efficiency, accuracy and hours of lost time.
In order to see and understand the complete picture and make fast, data-driven decisions, you’ll need to build dashboards that can show you what’s really happening across many sets of data, correlate patterns across multiple metrics, and provide both a summary and in-depth views of performance. The “single source of truth” dashboard is no myth.
