"Understanding and Designing Reports - 10 questions you don't want to ask"
From data to dashboard, the headlong rush to produce reports is endemic in our industry. Let's stop and think about what we are doing and who we are doing it for?
A serious and hopefully enlightening session "Looking at pretty reports produced with meaningful intention".
- What makes a great report (the reasons behind why we do)
- Presenting quality reports - the dos and don'ts to successful reports

"The WRONG Ways To Measure And Report!"
Why is it so hard to create insightful measures and meaningful reports? Measurement and reporting is core to effective control and improvement yet so many organisations suffer from poor, inadequate and missing measurements and reports. As both a practitioner and consultant, John has seen and collected many examples of both and will use these to show how organisations get it so badly wrong and by implication, how to get it RIGHT.
- Classic measurement and reporting mistakes
- Effective ways to communicate and drive improvement

"Bringing metrics to life - the service desk story"
Don't let metrics be dull. Create a picture of your Service Desk with numbers - present them clearly; guide your audience beyond the obvious and focus them on subtler details and nuance. Add colour and dimension to visually represent your customers' current circumstances then use them to influence your future service.
- Present numerical facts interestingly and engagingly.
- Delve into human metrics -services are used and supported by people, so measure and present the human factors of your service
- Address "bad reporting habits" - build up a flexible report portfolio instead; start with five brilliant Service Desk KPI's

"Measure what Matters"
How much information can we actually manage and how much do we need to make effective business decisions. Steve will tell us that we only process seven pieces of information at any one time, and that by focusing on six or seven aspects of management we can be highly effective.
Attendees will benefit from the work Steve has done with large-scale organisations on a variety of different dashboards and reporting frameworks. During this time Steve has developed a strong, pragmatic approach to measuring the right things and getting the right / trusted data.
