Performance Dashboards: Measuring, Monitoring, and Managing your Business by Wayne Eckerson is quite possibly my favorite business intelligence book. I've recommended the first edition of Performance Dashboards to my clients, regardless of whether they were business users or IT professionals. For the second edition, I had two primary questions. First, would it still be the first book I'd recommend? And second, should owners of the first edition purchase the second edition? I'm happy to say that the answer to both questions is "yes". Although the book covers the same themes as its predecessor, the book's contents have been reorganized and over 50% of the material is new.

If you're looking for your first book on business intelligence, dashboards and performance management, this is it. And if you own the first edition, you'll appreciate the new chapters, case studies, and new organization of the material. I've seen many dashboard projects fail because either the business sponsors, the IT department, or sometimes both think that they can continue business as usual. There is a third way and Performance Dashboards provides valuable insights that can help you find it.

This book is ostensibly about creating dashboards, however one cannot effectively create a dashboard without also considering strategy, data, architecture etc etc - so whilst the focus of the book is about the dashboard, this is focus and not delineated subject matter. It's a very thorough read for anyone involved in BI
