How to Build a Dashboard for your Nonprofit: A Critical Strategic Tool Reveals Itself

Event Date: 
Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

A well-designed dashboard is meant to show a glance at whether a nonprofit is making headway on its critical variables. These variables differ from one group to another, but a tailored dashboard organizes and focuses conversations and keeps them moving among various stakeholder groups. Thus they are a critical tool of strategy and transparency for modern nonprofits. But many nonprofit leaders are still confused about how key indicators should be developed and visually tracked.

In this workshop, two nonprofits will share their dashboards, discussing the rationales behind what they track, tools they use to construct the graphics, and ways their dashboards are used to guide conversations and reporting to various internal and external stakeholders.

Participants will gain an understanding of:

  • The value of the basic process for establishing and maintaining a dashboard
  • How to choose the metrics you will track
  • How the information is used with various stakeholder groups
  • How to think about graphic design
