One of the principal goals of any dashboard is to inform its users by creating an overview of multiple key performance indicators (KPIs). A good dashboard shows all relevant KPIs in a single screen. We need a compact and effective way to display them. The SMART KPI List for Power BI is created specifically for this purpose.

The S.M.A.R.T framework is often applied as a guide in the setting objectives. Here we use this acronym to describe this visual:

  • Specific
    A specific dashboard needs to display all important indicators in one single overview. We need to surround the indicator with sufficient context. Measures that need our immediate attention can be highlighted. This is done with a red dot next to the sparkline;

  • Measurable
    A single value is a weak indicator of performance. This can be improved when you provide more context. A sparkline shows you the trend to determine if you are moving towards your goal. You can visualize the distance from your goal by including a target value. You can even show the difference between the current value and the target. This is done in a deviation chart (as shown in the example below);

  • Achievable
    The reader can compare the actual results with the target. This allows the reader to compare the performance of multiple KPI’s in one single overview.

  • Relevant
    The sparkline bandwidth displays the range of acceptable results. This helps the user to identify “normal” and “abnormal” results from the past.

  • Time-bound
    The sparkline provides the required historical context to each indicator. This strengthens the performance indicator in its role to manage performance.
