For this week’s discussion, assume you are heading a PMO in your organization and you have decided to develop a formal procedure for how dashboards have to be designed. A section of this procedure is supposed to identify rules for designing dashboards. For this section of the procedure, prepare a narrative (not a bulleted list) to identify the rules and rationales for each rule (Reference rules for dashboard design in Chapter 6 of the textbook).
Respond to two or more of your classmate’s postings in any of the following ways:
- Build on something your classmate said.
- Explain why and how you see things differently.
- Ask a probing or clarifying question.
