Indeed, the car dashboard analogy is used extensively in the business performance dashboard business. In my quest to create meaningful, valuable dashboards, I must always keep an open mind. While I thought the business tachometer is a good idea, and maybe it is ok, I must take heed of Dr. Nicholas Bissantz’s critique of the car metaphor. http://blog.bissantz.com/tachometer

Dr. Bissantz’s work is extraordinary. I will be adding sparklines to my list of graphs to work on. http://www.bissantz.com/sparklines/index.asp

Because the car dashboard metaphor is still ubiquitous in the business performance dashboard world, dials and guages will for the time being will remain as a dashboard component widget just as pie charts and bar charts are still used. However, killer business performance dashboards must adopt sparklines.
