Business Activity Dashboard Screenshot – tracking time, activities, actual vs. planned

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 9:10 am

A dashboard screenshot that tracks hours spent on various business activities. It comes from and is divided into 2 main columns, one for actual and the other for planned. The actual side has the red/green/yellow indication. The yellow status for time under the allocated target doesn't seem right to me, but I guess that was the client preference. If you spent less than the allocated time, isn't it good? Or, is it bad because that task received not enough attention? This is the type of question on the business side that can take days and days of back and forth to resolve.

Enterprise 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 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_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
