In the last few years, while working with several risk and compliance teams from different industries to improve their reports, I noticed the following:
There was no shortage of functional spreadsheets with a lot of tables and, if the author was feeling adventurous, the occasional chart or two.The increased availability of self-service business intelligence tools, however, seems to be playing a part in the evolution of risk and compliance reporting. Where reports were traditionally produced mainly to comply with a regulation, we are now seeing a lot more dashboards created specifically to support the organisation’s strategic decision-making.
Based on all the experiences I have had working as an Information Architect at Protecht, I decided to put together a list of "Five Tips for Creating Dashboards your Users Actually Use".
In this practical e-Book, you will find useful tips and easy to follow checklist that will help you in the process of creating astonishing dashboards that will show the most relevant information in a clear and beautiful way.
