Dashboards have become a popular means to present critical Business information at a glance, but few do so effectively. Huge investments are made in Information Technology to produce actionable information, only to have it robbed of meaning at the very last stage of the process: the presentation of insights to those responsible for making decisions. When designed well, Dashboards engage the power of visual perception to communicate a dense collection of information in an instant with exceptional clarity. This can only be achieved, however, by applying visual design skills that address the unique design challenges of Dashboards. These skills are not intuitive; they must be learned.

You will learn to:

• Recognize the common problems in Dashboard design
• Match your message to the right means of display
• Avoid clutter and arrange data in a way that communicates clearly and at a glance
