Presentation Overview: Your World is not Red or Green; Your Dashboards Shouldn’t be, Either"
Dashboards have gained a lot of popularity over the past several years as a way to summarize important metrics for managers and executives.  Some are very good and useful, some are mediocre, and some actually drive harmful or wasteful behavior. This presentation will discuss the ins and outs of business and operational dashboards, talk about things to avoid and why, and present some basic principles of graphic presentation and quality management that should inform your dashboards and make them more effective tools for management.

Plenty of time will be allocated for interactive discussions during the presentation and the speaker promises to follow up with answers to challenges which cannot be met during the ASQ 509 meeting.
