The fundamentals of management information
When it comes to management information, where do we need to be careful? What topics are driving the scene? What roles do resolution, eyespan, and scaling play in creating quality reports? Why do people talk about traffic lights, gauges, and dashboards? Is PowerPoint really dangerous? These are questions that have shaped us – and our software – for years. If you overhear the presentations or conversations during the breaks at our events, you might be surprised to hear a colorful mix of terms from business, IT, psychology, and even neurobiology.
While some are marketing terms or buzzwords, others are backed by positions or findings. All refer to methods, content, form, or design. Since we would like you to join the dialog, we have created a list of terms which we feel are important and have explained what software can do to make business more intelligent.
