What is the difference between a dashboard and a scorecard? Referring to Wayne Eckerson’s “Performance Dashboards” book (see one of my previous blogs for book details)…
The primary difference between the two is that dashboards monitor the performance of operational processes whereas scorecards chart the progress of tactical and strategic goals. Here’s a table that helps spell out the details…
- Purpose: Measures performance
- Users: Supervisors, specialists
- Updates: Real-time feeds
- Data: Events
- Display: Visual graphs, raw data
- Purpose: Charts progress
- Users: Executives, managers, staff
- Updates: Periodic snapshots
- Data: Summaries
- Display: Visual graphs, text comments
