The Elements of Good Excel Dashboards and Decision Support Systems
In this chapter, I’ll discuss what makes for a good dashboard and what I even mean by the term. As you go through the chapter, you should pay particular attention to the many examples presented by Microsoft and others. I will critique this work and explain why you might choose something different. At times, it might feel I’m challenging common wisdom. But I’ll do that for good purpose: many misconceptions of creating applications in Excel have led to poor design.
