On the business side, the focus of a KPI or scorecard project is always on determining what specific levels trigger the various red/green/yellow conditions. But how, as the designer or programmer, do you lay out the dashboard screen for the user to enter these levels? We've seen hundreds of view mode screenshots, but what about edit or configure views? From the files of the very talented graphic designer at http://www.innerfacedesign.com comes this KPI trigger level input screenshot. As you can see, some KPIs require a range while others are greater than or less than an absolute number. This particular solution uses the color of the backgrounds of the sections to aid in the editing process.
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 enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) 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 a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com.
