The wire-frame kit has already proved useful in all stages of dashboard development, but the kit really shines during the collaborative process when you can actually build the elements of a dashboard in the room with your stakeholders.

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.

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.

Ultimately an effective dashboard starts with the right questions, then supports and answers those questions in a logical order. This product seemed to do a great job prompting the user through that process.
