Why intelligent dashboards do not always lead to intelligent decisions

"Senior managers adore their dashboards. Are they really capable of understanding what they indicate? I have my doubts!" And so do many dashboard developers. Had they not, though, invested a huge amount of workdays for creating very sophisticated tools a few years ago? You remember? In those days business intelligence was all about dashboards. Everyone wanted a dashboard to display information about their business. As analytics improved, dashboards got more detailed and the visual display got better, allowing better drill-down into detail. They also started to draw on real-time information. Somewhere along the line, however, quite a lot of people seemed to forget that it isn’t really about the dashboard itself. It’s actually about how you use it.
