Presentation & Continental Breakfast at 7:30
Networking at 9:00
Are dashboards—the concise graphic presentation of key financial, program, and fund raising progress indicators—just another fad, fueled by fear of pages of numbers and easy access to color printers? Or, are they an essential tool for getting Board and management attention focused on key decisions for your nonprofit?
Join peers for a frank discussion of what actually works and what just looks pretty. While a picture may be worth a thousand words, a misguided graphic depiction can confuse just about everyone. We’ll take a look at a variety of dashboard approaches to hone in on several key questions:
- What financial and other information actually benefits from graphic depiction
- How to use the most effective graphic depiction for essential financial indicators
- How to address the differing dashboard needs of Boards, executive directors, and other managers
