2009 Excel Dashboard Competition Winners

Thanks to everyone who entered this years competition, again the standard was very high, and it’s always great to see the product being used so effectively. The entrants were extremely varied in both their style and subject matter, and made for a difficult decision. However I’m pleased to be able to announce the winners:

1) Ajay V Singh – Operations Dashboard for a Debt Collections Company.

The target audience are the CXO level execs of the business, aiming to provide a view of all the nerve points of the organization in a single unified interface that is portable and yet comprehensive.

The dashboard layout is dense but uncluttered and well thought through. Colours are well balanced, and allow the reds to draw the reader’s attention as intended.

Ajay’s background summary of the dashboard, with larger screen shots, will be available on our web site in the coming week.

2) John Munoz – Insights into Unemployment in the United States.

Using data from the bureau of Labor statistics, the dashboard gives a deep glimpse into the unemployment situation in the US. A large volume of disparate and tabular information is brought together in a single concise view, which aids understanding and adds real insight. The trends and demographic splits come through very well, and make for easy comparison.

John’s background summary of the dashboard, with larger screen shots, will be available on our web site in the coming week.

3) Lisa Cunningham – Anti-Social Behaviour Dashboard

The dashboard is produced by the Research and Information Team at Leicestershire County Council as part of a suite of dashboards produced for the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnerships. It is available to the public through the local web portal, which makes readability, and also the contact information provided vital. The dashboard aims to provide an at a glance view of the level and trend of ASB, and does an excellent job.
