Today the phrase “evidence–based” is king. And we are always asked to show data that supports our claims of prior work in our proposals or for accomplished objectives in our grant reports. Dashboards are the key to creating evidence-based cultures in your development office or out in your funded projects. You do not need fancy software to create a customized dashboard, excel does fine thank you. In this webinar you will learn lessons gained from industry where dashboards are the norm. Within one day of this webinar you can start your own dashboard to help track and support your development office. This webinar is full of examples that you can relate to and will help you to avoid some common dashboard pitfalls.

- Distinguish informational elements, trends and key performance indicators
- Create ownership to make the dashboard a dynamic reporting tool
- Develop your own dashboard with examples you can use.
