There is a colossal disconnect between the volumes of data collected by organizations and the people who might make use of it. This gap can be bridged by creating understandable, focused, thoughtful data presentation tools. These tools -- whether in the form of reporting, dashboards, visualizations, or KPIs --require unique skills to shape the data to the needs of different audiences.

They require a culture that values the impact of data on decision-making, a willingness to test new data presentation tools and flexibility to adjust and refine these tools to make them more useful.
