NNIP Partners have reported that funders and clients have increasingly been asking them to develop data dashboards. This has led to lively discussions about what it takes in design, technology, and group process to create an effective dashboard that leads to positive change in our neighborhoods.
The purpose of this session is to discuss the role of dashboards for community improvement initiatives. When does it make sense to create them? When does it make sense not to create them? And what are some best practices to make sure that they will ultimately be successful?
