KPIs and key figures in dashboards & visual analytics

Definition, best practice and obstacles

60 min. 

Often, companies report meaningless KPIs and key figures because nobody asks what action or decision is derived from them. The opportunity to eliminate this problem in dashboards and analytics is mostly missed. Old PowerPoints are used and squeezed into dashboards.

In this talk, methods are presented for visualizing meaningful KPIs and key figures in dashboards and analytics. With the help of our best practices, it becomes a tangible experience. All examples are tool independent and can be used everywhere.

Additionally, it shows how visual filters, good storytelling and interactivity bring out the best in key figures.

Dashboard design and visual analysis of data

Usability, information Design & storytelling

60 min. 

With every tool you can create good or bad dashboards. The result is that you receive little acceptance from the recipient, who demands simplicity. Such simplicity should not influence the amount of data and the complexity of the message, but the presentation, design and usability.

This talk shows which do's and don'ts should be taken into account when creating a dashboard and how clarity can be created for the recipient with simple methods using a variety of best practices in common tools.

It also shows what good dashboards should have in common with iPhone, Netflix and modern cars.

How do I get the business requirements into a dashboard?

The Dashboard Requirement Process

60 min. 

If you ask departments what they would like to see in the dashboard and what is relevant, you always hear the same answer: "Everything!". This results in unclear, unstructured and difficult to build dashboards that are never used.

The Dashboard Requirement Process helps to solve this problem. It defines how the requirements collection should proceed. But the process alone is not enough. It requires suitable tools such as digital questionnaires, visualization standards, prototyping workbooks, dashboard canvas and checklists for successful requirements capture.

Using best practices, the talk shows how the Dashboard Requirement Process should function and how it can be easily implemented.

Transformation and internal marketing for data projects

High impact, but often forgotten

60 min. 

"They simply don't realize how good and useful our last data project was and still use the old stuff!"
Very often dashboard and data projects are successfully completed and yet they don't succeed. This is mainly due to missing project marketing. The benefits are not shown and it is assumed that everyone should recognize them for themselves.

This presentation will show how a project (product!) can be marketed internally with simple and cost-effective means, using best practices and numerous examples. Videos, podcasts, webcast, flyer, one pager etc. barely cost money and achieve a huge impact in the digital age.
