Beyond Dashboards Workshop

November 7, 2019 | Ottawa, Canada

Workshop Description
Based on Nick Desbarats' experiences designing dashboards for over 50 large organizations and teaching dashboard design to thousands of professionals, the one-day Beyond Dashboards course uncovers the real reasons why so many dashboards fail to satisfy users and organizations; reasons that go far deeper than the visual design on which most dashboard books and courses focus. Participants will learn a practical, actionable framework for creating a system of purpose-specific displays (problem-scanning displays, metric diagnostic displays, performance reporting displays, etc.) that enables users to get answers to their data-related questions quickly and easily, including basic ones such as, β€œIs everything O.K. at the moment?”, often for the first time.

For more detailed information, please visit the Beyond Dashboards course information page.

Space is limited to allow for a high degree of personal interaction and feedback, and early registration is recommended. Early Bird rates (approximately 7% off the regular registration fee) will be in effect until Oct. 7.
