Publisher's Summary

Tips, techniques, and trends on harnessing dashboard technology to optimize business performance.

In Performance Dashboards (Second Edition), author Wayne Eckerson explains what dashboards are, where they can be used, and why they are important for measuring and managing performance. As Director of Research for The Data Warehousing Institute, a worldwide association of business intelligence professionals, Eckerson interviewed dozens of organizations that have built various types of performance dashboards in different industries and lines of business. Their practical insights explore how you can effectively turbo-charge performance-management initiatives with dashboard technology.

This edition includes all-new case studies; industry research; news chapters on "Architecting Performance Dashboards" and "Launching and Managing the Project"; and updated information on designing KPIs, designing dashboard displays, integrating dashboards, and types of dashboards.

The book provides a solid foundation for understanding performance dashboards, business intelligence, and performance management. It addresses the next generation of performance dashboards, such as Mashboards and Visual Discovery tools, and includes new techniques for designing dashboards and developing key performance indicators.

In addition, Performance Dashboards offers guidance on how to incorporate predictive analytics, what-if modeling, collaboration, and advanced visualization techniques.

This updated book, which is 75% rewritten, provides a foundation for understanding performance dashboards, business intelligence, and performance management to optimize performance and accelerate results.

So so.... the reall stuff only starts half-way in

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Anyone who wants to start putting dashboard or rather performance measurement toolsets together

What do you think your next listen will be?

David & Goliath - Gladwell

Did Ken Maxon do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Nope - voice was monotonous - and after my previous listen was a complete let down.

Any additional comments?

The really good stuff only starts half-way into the book

Far too long

Content is interesting, but doesn't work that well as an audiobook. Key messages were useful, but could have been delivered in less than half the time.
