Free Webinar - Registration Required
All organizations need simple and effective ways to monitor their progress. Increasingly, nonprofits are turning to data dashboards to help them see how they are doing in relation to their goals, make course corrections, and plan for the future. A data dashboard is a tool that provides a centralized means of monitoring, measuring, analyzing, and extracting meaning from different datasets while displaying information in an interactive, intuitive, and visual way. In this workshop, we will explore seven key elements of effective data dashboards.
Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of the potential of data dashboards for their organization and how to build a data dashboard that staff will actually use for planning and for showing progress to board members, funders, and others.
