A dashboard is a visual display of the most important information needed to achieve one or more objectives, consolidated and arranged on a single screen so the information can be monitored at a glance.
The terms "dashboard" and "scorecard" are often used interchangeably although they are indeed different things. A mejor difference between them is that a "scorecard" focuses on a given metric and compares it to a forecast or target, whereas a dashboard will present multiple numbers in different ways.
