Creator of the Dashboard Wireframe Kit
Nick created the kit for a fast way to align users and stakeholders with actionable business insight.
The Dashboard Wireframe Kit makes design of actionable insight accessible to everyone. From non-technical business executives to the deeply technical data scientist, the kit serves as the common language to communicate data needs.
It teaches anyone how to extract business value from data and frames a clear path to action. Becoming truly data-driven starts here.
Senior Manager – Deloitte
“Analytics is as much an art as it is a science and Nick has a unique ability to bridge the gap between data science, digital and the generation of measurable, tangible business value. And all with an energetic approach and sprinkle of Irish charm!”
Director – Focus Brands
“I first met Nick at a conference where his session was hands down the best over the 4 days I was there. He introduced the dashboard kit and I was intrigued. Dashboard requirements gathering has always been the most inconsistent part of our methodology and the ideas and concepts in this kit greatly help us in getting to the best design in the shortest time.
The ideas in this kit not only help when meeting with our business users, but also within our analytics team. Instead of creating prototype dashboards and then iterating, we can use these templates and iterate on the fly.”
Senior Developer – TransUnion
“I got hands on experience with this kit at a TDWI conference and I was very pleasantly surprised by how much it helped with speeding up the wire-framing process. This tried and tested kit helps you to easily gather requirements and be able to put a wireframe together that will allow you to visually appreciate how well you are doing to get to actionable information while keeping things simple enough for a user to understand.
I have been able to use Nick’s templates along with the wireframing practices he presented at the conference to significantly improve our processes.”
