Dashboard reports are similar to great pieces of art with one huge exception.
When looking at a piece of art whether it is a painting or sculpture it ultimately moves you by giving you inspiration, drive or awe. A well defined dashboard report should do the same. It should inspire you to continuously improve your business or department. It should drive you to take action where needed and finally it should give you awe when seeing that your business or department is running smooth and your team is exceeding its goals.
However, there is one big difference between a piece of art and a dashboard report. Unlike art, dashboard reports need to be flexible and customizable to change over time as your needs change. The change can be driven by new product or service offerings that need to be tracked, new goals that need to be achieved or a dashboard report getting made more granular to get down to determining how to improve a specific concern.
