“I'm the Executive Director and I report to the board. I tried an Excel style dashboard but it needs improvement.” “I struggle to adapt dashboards for different audiences. When I ask a stakeholder what type of data they need to drive decision-making, they practically shrug their shoulders and leave it up to me. I make the best decisions I can and hope for the best.” “I want to design scorecards and corporate KPI reports that people are interested in reading."
Does this sound familiar? If so, our Dashboard Design online workshop may be for you.
In this 90-minute workshop, which focuses on building static one-page handouts or dashboards inside of spreadsheet programs like Excel, you’ll see sample dashboards from organizations like yours. Ann K. Emery will share the story behind each dashboard so that you can learn about the dashboard’s audience and goals. For example, some of the dashboards were designed to track progress towards goals. Other dashboards were designed to help organizations compare their different program areas. You can decide which elements of each dashboard would be most applicable to your own work. Then, we’ll build a static dashboard inside of Microsoft Excel. These dashboards will live inside of Excel and get shared with stakeholders as PDFs through email or as printed handouts during meetings.
