Dashboardkatharsis Definition

Definition nach Florian D. und Eugen B. vom 16. Mai 2017

Bei einer Dashboardkatharsis handelt es sich um eine Bereinigung des Dashboards von unnötigen, visuellen oder formalisierten Details. Dabei ist das Ziel gemäß dem klassischen Oxymoron mit weniger, mehr zu erreichen. Im Falle eines Dashboards Erhöhung der Aussagekraft, Fokus auf das Wesentliche.

Beispielelemente die weggelassen werden können: Beschriftung der Achsen, wenn aus dem Inhalt bereits der Kontext ersichtlich ist. Linien, wenn Grenzen durch Anordnung einzelner Graphen oder des Inhalts bereits gegen ist.
