Team reportingimpulse

We see ourselves as innovators and trainers who realize agile dashboard concepts from small and fast projects.

We support companies with the preparation and implementation of dashboards in 5 phases.

Phase 1/5

Instruction & Training

We consistently pursue a blended approach in the training of employees. In other words, it is a combination of digital content ( and presence seminars.

The participants learn:

  •  Information Design (visualization of diagrams and tables)
  •  Interactivity & Storytelling (The story from the KPI (tile) to the detail (table))
  •  Visual Analytics (Explorative data analysis and creation of complex diagrams)
  •  Frontend training (introduction to SAC, Power BI, Tableau, Qlik and Board)

Phase 2/5

Creation of a Dashboard Concept

First, the dashboard concept will be implemented. This helps to establish standards for the construction of dashboards that can be used worldwide. Likewise, they are tool-independent and based on best practices from over 10 years of project experience.

Content Dashboard concept (200 pages in PowerPoint):

  • Design of diagrams and tables
  • Use of colour & corporate design
  • Suitable and unsuitable diagrams
  • Create KPI- , monitoring- , table- , scorecard- , portfolio- and visual analytics dashboards
  • Use of filters, drill downs and visual components

Phase 3/5

Paper Prototyping & Dashboard Canvas

We create paper prototyping & dashboard canvas with our customers. That provides clarification of what should be achieved with the dashboards and is important for the implementation in the tool. During this phase the requirements management is conducted, feasibility is checked and we provide impulses on how the dashboards will succeed.

Phase 4/5

Prototyping in SAC, Power BI, Tableau, Qlik und Board

We support our customers in all common front-end tools and create future dashboards together with the employees. Again, we rely on a mix of digital and presence. In addition to tool training, there is also the option of requesting digital help whenever it is needed. In web sessions the problems are solved by our consultants and the creators can proceed with their work.

Phase 5/5

Dashboard-Marketing & Train the Trainer

The final phase is to launch the dashboards to the recipients and enable more people to manage requirements and construct dashboards on their own. We have developed a Train the Trainer concept so that companies can train themselves. In addition, we support to obtain recipients and have various strategies to establish dashboards in companies.
