Program success dashboard



Looking for project dashboard that really provides insight at a glance?

This one from John Higbee might be the answer

If you've not a Higbee person, maybe you've not seen it. Take a look at John Higbee's presentation about "Program Success Probability" . (*)

Take notice of the neat arrangement of program success divided left and right by internal and external factors.

On page 5 of Higbee's slides, you'll find this image:

Dynamic colors
This presentation is intended as a dashboard. The colors are dynamic on a Red-Green-Yellow-Gray (not evaluated) scale. The scale has to be defined (calibrated) for each program in order for management to be able to get a proper take-away.

Trendy
Trends are shown in each block with arrows. Again, trends must be defined for each program, i.e. what is the meaning for an up-pointing arrow?

Of course, Higbee goes on in the presentation with more detail and more examples of dashboard presentations, for example the more-or-less standard presentation of sliding bars to show progress vs plan

For the Gov in all of us
Since this presentation is for a government audience, it includes dashboards for contractor performance and even contractor business success

Bottom line: an interesting suggestion for dashboards are in this presentation, along with at least one gov'y's idea of what's important.
