Aug 24, Bob Wallner rated it really liked it Shelves: I enjoyed this book, and I appreciated the fact that the author gave me permission to skim and skip various chapters.
The author has solidified for dashboards to be effective; they have to be more than that. The first third of this book discusses business intelligence and the need for integrated data in dashboards. The author spends a fair amount of time describing and comparing a dashboard I enjoyed this book, and I appreciated the fact that the author gave me permission to skim and skip various chapters. The author spends a fair amount of time describing and comparing a dashboard to a scorecard, and explains the levels of dashboards and their uses and intended audiences.
The middle third of the book is a series of case studies highlighting how a few companies have successfully implemented dashboards and how those companies are utilizing their dashboards. Finally, the author concludes with the how to create dashboards and goes into some of the common pitfalls. He dedicates an entire chapter to architecture which gets into the technical side of dashboards; this is where I appreciated his permission to skim certain sections.
My biggest takeaway from this book was; for dashboards to be genuinely useful they have to be integrated into the company culture, and they have to be agreed on with robust data. Too often I have created Excel-based dashboards with data that was questionable at best and outright wrong at worse. The dashboards that I've built require heavy user integration, and the author makes it clear that the best dashboards are the ones where nobody has to update them. They automatically go out to a data warehouse and pull the required data. The author does warn about this phenomenon and advises there may be dire consequences.
Overall a solid book and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to learn more about business analytics through dashboards. Feb 01, E rated it really liked it.

Though the book is directed toward businesspeople who deal with information technology, getAbstract finds it perfectly useful for managers and executives who are generally interested in performance improvement initiatives. I read this book over a very long period of time, putting it down and picking it up often.

If you have prior experience then you may find a few tidbits that you weren't aware of before, but not much else. The technology references are now a bit dated, but the principles expressed in the book remain the same and are of value for someone new to the topic.
Jan 28, Lisa rated it really liked it. I loved the first 4 chapters and last 4 as I could immediately use this knowledge in the workplace. It has helped me understand what is needed to not only introduce and implement business intelligence in the workplace, but how to ensure success, make it stick and bring value to the organization.
