Dashboard Design: How to Make Static Dashboards in Excel
Design static dashboards in Excel that inform, inspire, and look great.
Yes, you need a one-pager.
Leaders have more important things to do than read Dusty Shelf Reports.
No, not this one-pager.
Here's what my work looked like in 2009...
More of these dashboards, please.
Design dashboards that inform, inspire, and look great--all from the comfort of spreadsheet software you already have, like Excel.
Wait, what? There's no way you did that in Excel.
Stop searching for the perfect software program. You're already sitting on a gold mine.
But how do I share these dashboards with my audience?
The completed dashboards get shared with your audiences as PDFs.
- Your dashboards will make outstanding printouts for your staff meetings, board meetings, and conference sessions.
- You can also share your polished masterpieces as email attachments.
What about interactive dashboards?
Save your boss time. Send them a one-pager.
Don't make them remember another password to another dashboard software program. Don't make them click through a million drop-down menus and checkboxes to find the insights they're looking for.
Static dashboards deliver the right information to the right person at the right time.
What's included in this course?
I'm going to transform you into the dashboard hero that your organization needs. Here's what's included to make that happen.
How is this similar to your other courses?
The skills you build in each course are complementary, but not overlapping.
Each year, I lead dozens of in-person workshops for thousands of people. My online courses bring those skills to you, too.
Depict Data Studio also consults to the United Nations, State Department, and Centers for Disease Control, plus dozens more foundations, nonprofits, film companies, banks, hospitals, and universities worldwide.
Your data deserves to be out in the world--actionable, talked about, used--not gathering dust in spreadsheets.
What does an online course look like inside?
I talk with you like a real person, not a monotone robot reading off a boring script.
