Duration: One Day Course

Prerequisite: None

Preview Course Materials Course Outline

Performance management (PM) is a core practice in business management today, and it ranks high among the value opportunities of business intelligence. Using data to set goals and measure performance is a proven key to business success. Performance management strengthens the connection of tactics with strategy, and of operations with tactics—enabling feedback, monitoring, and accountability across all levels of business activity.

Dashboards and scorecards are the most effective ways to deliver business intelligence that drives performance management. A top-quality dashboard or scorecard looks deceptively simple, but creating simple and effective interfaces is surprisingly difficult. A powerful dashboard or scorecard involves the right indicators and metrics, the right visual elements, attention to relationships among visual elements, and the right kinds of click-through and user interaction. Further complexity arises when you work with groups of related scorecards and dashboards that must fit together to form an integrated performance management system.
