06 Apr Dashboards and Remote Work
Dashboards and remote working go hand in hand. Nowadays it is not possible to conceive any digital transformation strategy without including a dashboard or control panel to see a snapshot of the company’s situation.
In a scenario like the one we are facing today, with many companies encouraging employees to work from their homes, dashboards become a key tool to monitor the day-to-day activity of a company.
On the other hand, teleworking is a trend that is here to stay and that will change the way we think about work. This type of work is gradually gaining importance around the world and is becoming a way to attract talented workers. There are even some companies that are operating without physical offices.
In reality, going from a physical office to a virtual one is a direct consequence of digital transformation. Over the past few years, organizations around the world have made a great effort to digitize their business models. This model naturally means that employees receive and perform their tasks using computer systems.
As we can see, many companies have already generated software to obtain data to feed their dashboards and are using this information to make decisions. So, with the implementation of remote working, they will have all the benefits that this work dynamic brings while maintaining full control over the strategy’s outcomes.
WHAT IS A DASHBOARD?
A dashboard, or control panel displays an overview of an organization and allows us to check if the objectives are being met.
It should give us a clear idea of the company’s progress and highlight strengths and weaknesses. Its objective is to provide the information that enables us to guide, and if necessary, rectify the strategy established to carry out business.
In any case, it will contain measurable, updateable and relevant information from each company department.
WHAT IS A DASHBOARD FOR?
A dashboard plays a fundamental role in an organization’s decision-making process. It allows us to identify problems, and it provides us with the metrics we need to support our data strategies and not simply rely on intuitions.
Its main objective is to provide information on previously defined indicators and thus, monitor the degree of compliance with the established objectives.
In a remote work environment, it is very important that each team member is clear about their goals. Having a good dashboard, with the right indicators, will give the team leaders the information they need establish these correctly.
