Executive Dashboard

This guide provides examples and practical advice to help you create a best-in-class executive dashboard of your own.

What is An Executive Dashboard?

An executive dashboard displays key performance indicators (KPIs) data in one location so corporate officers can make the agile, data-driven decisions that drive productivity, grow revenue, and reduce risk. Modern executive dashboards combine data from all departmentals and allow users to freely explore data and dig deeper for insights.

CEO Executive Dashboard

For the modern CEO, an executive dashboard is essential to success. With all critical performance metrics presented in one place, Chief Executive Officers are able to review and analyze data that's essential to the success of their business in real time. CEOs can use an executive dashboard that combines relevant data sources from across the organization to gain a unified view — or dive into specific data sets from any line business — to unearth insights previously hidden in data silos and lead with confidence.

COO Executive Dashboard

An executive dashboard helps Chief Operations Officers visualize and explore relationships between complex data sources so they can better manage revenue and profitability while mitigating risk. COO dashboards can help execs manage and measure end-to-end processes to reveal where rapid intervention and improvement is needed. For example, a sales and operations dashboard (S&OP) that incorporates financial data can help COOs gauge forecasted vs actual sales by product, category and region, gleaning insights to guide integrated business planning processes.

Chief Marketing Officers and their teams need to optimize across every stage of the customer lifecycle. An executive dashboard allows CMOs and revenue operations leaders to effectively measure marketing ROI, drive proactive changes and respond to market conditions as they happen. They gain a real-time view of KPIs across the marketing funnel, hone in on specific strategic marketing initiatives to spot opportunities or issues, and confidently make decisions and share insights with stakeholders from across their organization.
