Balanced Scorecards help organizations translate strategy into action. Operational dashboards enable managers to monitor operations and tactics. Balanced Scorecards and operational dashboards are in high use and high demand in for profit and non-profit organizations. The primary tool used to create Balanced Scorecards and operational dashboards is Microsoft Excel. Although Microsoft Excel is widely used for developing scorecards and dashboards, most developers become frustrated and do not develop adequate or maintainable solutions. This title will show medium and advanced level Microsoft Excel users how to create robust, maintainable and dynamically updated scorecards and dashboards. No other book covers both scorecards and dashboards with Excel. This book will cover several versions of Excel, so companies who have not yet upgraded to 2010 will still find this book useful and applicable for data visualization and overall business strategy. While there are many books devoted to Balanced Scorecards, operational dashboards, performance management and data visualization, there are no books focused on how to combine those and then implement them in Microsoft Excel.
