Strategic Management Dashboard – Demo of a Business Scorecard using MS Sharepoint

If you are new to Microsoft SharePoint, the fastest way to see what can be done using the product is to actually try out different applications created using SharePoint. Live sites of any sore are difficult to find, nevermind dashboard or scorecard apps. Here is a demo of a business scorecard done in SharePoint. You’ll need to enter “visitor” as the username and password. Navigate to the Business Scorecard section by clicking on the tab. The links are interactive and bring up various charts. The overall scorecard is divided into sections such as Sales, Production, Finance, Human Resources Management and Quality Assurance. Each indicator is a red/yellow/green or chart graphic. Here is the dashboard screenshot:

Homework: For tips on using dashboards to measure performance, please see the book Performance Dashboards: Measuring, Monitoring, and Managing Your Business. If you are on an enterprise dashboard project, do yourself a favor and take a look at Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT, the only book on actually implementing enterprise dashboards.

So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s favorite books on business dashboards.
