Top 10 Project Management Dashboard Traits

Dashboard ButtonEvery business manager from Hospitality to Healthcare, Marketing to Mobile and Sales to Customer Support is looking for a way to see what they face for the day.  A dashboard, which integrates information from multiple components into a unified display, is a great tool to help focus and prioritize what needs to be addressed for the day, week, month or longer.  The format and functionality of your dashboard should inspire you, not make you run the other way.  Here’s a list of what I feel are some of the top 10 project management  dashboard traits.  What else do you look for?  What  industry are you in and what works for you?
