The content of this dashboard is simple and very basic; although, it can be described as the foundation of any progress report.
I came from several discussions with many project control professional from all over the world who explained that progress dashboards should be fulfilled with different progress analysis such as;
Project Calendar Analysis showing elapsed days, remaining days and total delays.
Full explanation on the reason behind the delays.
Critical path analysis.
Earned Value indices such as Planned Value, Earned Value, Schedule Variance and SPI.
Comparison between the progress of this Month/Week against the progress of the previous Month/Week.
The KPIs of the Late S-Curve in Addition to the KPIs of the Early curve.
Progress site photos.
The above items are not covering all the feedback that I used to receive each time I publish a dashboard online. In fact, I have received recommendations to cover double of these items in my reports. Everyone has his/her experience in defining a perfect dashboard. However, non of them has told that producing a simple and good-looking dashboard is not important aspect of a report perfection.
