Shadan Malik aims to acquaint businesses with the concept of "dashboards" and the process of implementing them, from collecting information and assessing the audience to storyboarding and project planning. Other dashboard-related books discuss the value of these information platforms, but don't explain how to create them. One warning: The book is crammed with charts and images, which may turn off readers who don't absorb information graphically, though it will please those who do. Some screenshots are so poorly reproduced that you may think you suddenly need a new eyeglass prescription. getAbstract recommends this book to executives, department heads, managers and other businesspeople who wish to implement a dashboard and need some practical guidance.
In this summary, you will learn
- What dashboards are;
- How they can enhance your business; and
- How to create a dashboard.
