Visualizing data correctly is an essential part of how data is perceived and it can play a vital rol in decision making. Many information dashboards fail to satisfy those who use them and are often under-utilized or abandoned after just a few months. This is a sad reality indeed since dashboards have the potential to significantly improve the effectiveness of users and save them a great deal of time.
Designed by industry experts, updated by Credon, this course equips participants with the fundamental principles and best practices that enable them to design visual information dashboards that:
- Can be reviewed by users quickly and without forcing them to click through filters and selectors that erode productivity and long-term dashboard traction
- Make problems and opportunities within the organization “pop” so that they get noticed
- Enable users to see potentially causal relationships between metrics to help determine why a problem has occurred and how to respond to it
- The definition of what a dashboard is (and isn’t), and what a dashboard should do as opposed what should be left to other types of information displays
- Effective dashboard organization and layout practices that enable rapid visual scanning, with examples of well-designed dashboards
- Compact information display techniques that enable large numbers of metrics to be shown on a single screen
- Graph types that work well on dashboards and those that don’t
- The importance of displaying contextual values such as targets, historical averages, and the like alongside current values to highlight metrics that require attention
- Steps in the dashboard design process
- 13 common dashboard design mistakes and how to avoid them
