Update regarding this enterprise dashboard: It's been over a year and a half since I posted about the amazing NASDAQ MarketSite dashboard. Well, it took a while and quite a bit of doing, but I finally got to see it in person. The Dashboard Spy is nothing if not persistent!

BP Daily Dashboard for Gulf of Mexico Incident

Dashboard Spy: Raw File Edition Long time Dashboard Spy fans know that I can turn up some pretty amazing finds now and then. How would you like to see some internal dashboards that British Petroleum used to track their oil spill clean up activities? Don't have much to go on here except for some very interesting URLs from the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary web server. At this point, my guess is that the committee was examining BP's handling of the crisis and asked to see internal documentation. This came in the form of PDF dashboards! Take a look at this f

Is Managing by Historical Data a Myth?

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Today's guest post on The Dashboard Spy is by Allan Wille, President and CEO of Klipfolio. Myth: Managing by historical data is like driving while looking in the rear view mirror. Catch Quote: “Managing through the rear view mirror. A dangerous practice for any business! You’d never drive only looking backwards.” You've heard lines like this one before…it has all the right ingredients to be remembered and retold. It's catchy, it paints a clear picture, adds a dash of FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt), and may even be confused with true wisdom! Let’s debunk this. Let’s frame t

Business Activity Dashboard Screenshot - tracking time, activities, actual vs. planned

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

A dashboard screenshot that tracks hours spent on various business activities. It comes from http://www.foxfordservices.co.uk/Design/Web-programming-5.asp and is divided into 2 main columns, one for actual and the other for planned. The actual side has the red/green/yellow indication. The yellow status for time under the allocated target doesn't seem right to me, but I guess that was the client preference. If you spent less than the allocated time, isn't it good? Or, is it bad because that task received not enough attention? This is the type of question on the business side t

Executive Analytics Dashboard for Manufacturing Orders and Sales - real time, projection and trend KPIs

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

While it is very instructive to study screenshots of other people's enterprise dashboards for their designs and layouts, it is the Key Performance Indicator set that you should really pay attention to. Especially valuable to companies that are still forming their own KPIs, this "content" of the dashboard is what is most instructive. I was reading an article on Executive Analytics Dashboards for medical device companies at http://www.devicelink.com/mx/archive/03/01/informationtech.html and came across these very valuable graphics. They explain the KPIs chosen for a manufacturing o

Digital Dashboards Digital Dashboard Example: Software project management has its own little world of relevant KPIs that focus on resource issues (availabilty of business analysts, programmers, testers, dbas, etc), quality metrics (QA defects, sla), dependencies, etc. It's an area that is perfect for monitoring and optimizing through the visual approach of digital dashboards.

It's not often that engagement-level metrics are surfaced. This s

Example of a Hopelessly Complicated Dashboard

| excel dashboards | Comments (0)

Dashboards are at their best when they are outrageously simple. Their "at-a-glance" nature takes advantage of universal human perception into order to bring instant understanding of data trends. This example is outrageously complicated instead of simple. Sorry, but I would hate to have to attempt to understand this particular excel dashboard. See if you can make heads or tails out of it.
