Executive Dashboard Development
Executive Dashboard Development.
Virtually every business division uses PowerPoint to present figures from Excel, whether it be Finance, IT, Sales or Project Management – from investment analyses to monthly reports, from trend calculations and simulations to project results or statistics.
Target audiences need to be able to understand these figures quickly. In practice, this means tediously transferring data manually from Excel to PowerPoint, with the risk of error.
Not to mention a lot of effort spent on checking and monitoring. It’s always a time-intensive chore. It’s a waste of time. But there is a solution.
The overall aim of the Executive Dashboard Development course is to provide participants with the skills needed to design and apply project metrics and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
Moreover, the Executive Dashboard Development assists participants in identifying the driving forces for better value based project metrics and allows them to design project dashboards.
As enterprises and other organizations look to sift through and make sense of the all the structured and unstructured data available to them, dashboards are being positioned as the solution to their problems.
However, a dashboard needs special attention to the visual design, or the dashboard will fail to meet expectations. If not carefully designed, a new dashboard can leave consumers unsatisfied, frustrated, confused, and even overwhelmed.
The course enables participants to master the features of Microsoft PowerPoint in reporting performance and taking corrective and preventive actions.
