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 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:

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 of an enterprise dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
