Dashboard Design Training 

Dashboard Design for Insight & Action

 

I'm based in the US and I'd like to talk about a half day dashboard training.

Why do you need to learn dashboard design?

Dashboards fail for many reasons including negative user experience, lack of business value and misalignment between the users and stakeholders. 

Wireframing dashboards is quickly becoming the optimal method to address these problems. The largest consulting firms in the world use these processes to make sure their dashboards will be valuable, actionable and insightful BEFORE development starts and on future iterations of their dashboards.

Create actionable dashboards.

By taking a practical approach to enterprise dashboard design, you can ensure your dashboards bring value to the business and allow actionable insights for the users. Through a tried and tested process that consists of user/stakeholder interviews, workshops, design and data visualization best practices, the resulting dashboard is one that meets the goals of the business while supporting the users.

 

Your half-day training teaches industry best practices.

This half day, on-site training takes a hands-on approach to solving these problems. It will take you through a live process, focusing on your companies challenges; from business objectives right through to completed wireframes. By the end of the session, you will walk away with the knowledge of how to design best practices dashboards as well as your own dashboard wireframes.

 

 

You Will Learn:

  • Dashboard and data visualization best practices
  • Reasons affecting poor dashboard design
  • How to ensure a dashboard has business value
  • How to define next steps and action items
  • What an actionable dashboard looks like
  • Real-world applications and examples
  • Steps required to wireframe a successful dashboard
  • How your data can tell a story

The Enterprise Dashboard Process increases adoption and usability

Proven Formula

We’ve taken the guesswork out of how to layout the enterprise dashboard. Our dashboard template is based on the solid foundation hundreds of real-world operational dashboards. It provides the canvas to tell stories with your data.

Behavioral Change

There’s not much point seeing data if you can act on it when you need to. That action needs to be clear and intuitive. By associating an action with each chart the potential to change behavior is much increased.

Business Value

By having a questions-first approach, rather than flooding the dashboard with data, you ensure that you’re creating an asset with true business value – it’s part of the design process. Priority is given to solving business problems and answering questions.

Technology Agnostic

The important part of your dashboard is the information that you learn and action on – not the technology you’re using. That’s why we’ve made sure the outputs of the process can be easily replicated in all the main dashboard tools including Tableau, Qlik and Power BI.

 

 

Understand Storytelling for the Real World

Storytelling with data can be hard, but it's an effective tool to both communicate with your audience and persuade users to act. This training reveals how to formulate a simple narrative arc for your dashboard, starting at the navigation level and ending with user action. Creating the proper story starts with knowing your audience, including their pain points and needs.
