In this portion of the course project, you will construct an example of what might be included on an analytics dashboard for the organization, using recent financial data obtained from the Nexis Uni database. See Exhibit 5.9 in the textbook for an example of an analytics dashboard.
Find the company’s LexisNexis dossier in the Nexis Uni database, select the Financial Overview tab, and review the available financial data. Choose two metrics from the available data that you believe should be represented on the company’s dashboard in its business analytics portal. Your choices should be based on your analysis of the company’s strategy, objectives, critical success factors, and KPIs from the previous sections. For example, if you identified reducing inventory as an objective under the Operational Excellence strategic dimension, you might choose Total Inventory in the Assets table as a metric to display on your dashboard.
Download the table(s) containing your selected metrics from Nexis Uni by clicking the Download Table link at the bottom right of each table. Open each table in Excel and create a chart for each metric. Choose an appropriate chart type such as a column chart, donut chart, bar chart, etc., for each metric. Each chart should have a clear descriptive title; clearly labeled and appropriately scaled axes; and should display the status of the chosen metric at a glance. Include any visual indicators needed to put your metric in context, such as a line on your chart to indicate a target value, or a trend line for a time series. Be creative!
See the Web Links section on the Course Resources page for links to more dashboard examples for inspiration.
Copy and paste your two charts from Excel into Section 3 of your BA Plan document. For each chart, add a one-paragraph (100-200 words) explanation of why you chose that metric and how it relates to the strategy, objectives, and critical success factors you identified in the earlier sections.
Submit your BA Plan document including Sections 1, 2, and 3 to the Week 6: Course Project assignment.
