I love real-life, physical dashboard use! Remember how Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman matched wits in the movie Runaway Jury? They were each applying different methods of choosing jurors, but both used jury selection dashboards! If you haven’t seen the movie, check out how critical a role information delivery played.

Here’s Hackman’s dashboard:

And this was Hoffman’s jury selection dashboard:

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of business dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s favorite books.
