Enterprise Project Portfolio Dashboard – tracking costs, comments, status, economic benefits

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 2:57 pm

A well thought out series of enterprise project management / project portfolio dashboard screenshots at http://www.entry.com/reporting.html. From a couple of years ago, so no rockets going off in the visual graphics department, but this flow seems well laid out and easy to use. Sometimes simple text-based links and intuitive drilldowns work best. Those of you on project portfolio or IT management dashboard projects would do well to study the information on these screens. Rare to be able to see in detail this type of financial dashboard for projects.

First, a C-level executive would see comments from his team on his executive dashboard:

 Then, the projects are viewed within their context of the enterprise's project management framework:

The folks at http://www.csl-uk.com/dashboard.aspx have a series of enterprise dashboard screenshots which follow a pharmaceutical sales scenario. They use the common map-based drilldown approach. You'll see that you start at the national sales territories level and move down to the account level and then to individual doctors. The dashboard shows projected vs. actual sales activities, doctor information and geographical information.
