    Evaluation Option
    Organizational Dashboard

    Stephen Few defines a dashboard as: "A data dashboard is a visual display of the most important information needed to achieve one or more objectives, with the data consolidated and arranged on a single screen so the information can be monitored at a glance" (Few, 2004). 

    Data dashboards typically include several visualisations such as graphs or other visual representations of data, along with minimal text to describe the indicators being displayed on the dashboard. By displaying these visualisations on a single screen, the user can directly compare and draw conclusions from the data ‘at a glance’, which is not possible if the data is split across several screens or requires scrolling to view.
