Microsoft® Excel® dashboards are a powerful way to pull together different information in a single place to give a high-level overview of a business. A meaningful “big picture” view of business activities can drive the allocation of scarce resources.
Decisions are easier.
And, the end-user doesn’t have to spend valuable time swimming through seas of unimportant information to get to key information.
You could buy expensive software to create dashboards. But, before you do, see what you can do with tools you already possess in Excel.
