Slalom collaborated closely with eBay to start designing an interactive Tableau data dashboard based on the portfolios. We needed to create something user-friendly and visual, so all stakeholders and leaders could easily gain insights from it in real-time.
“Marianne was clearly passionate about the impact of the programs while conscious of the burden they were putting on the many employees at eBay. So I was excited about helping them get more visibility,” says John Mathis, Slalom’s information management and analytics practice area lead.
The dashboard needed five key data points: initiatives, milestones, milestone start and end dates, stakeholders involved, and their level of effort (i.e., their RACI score).
Before building it, we met with eBay multiple times to discuss our visions, share iterative drafts, and get their feedback.
“I worked directly with Slalom’s developer, and we co-developed the tool,” says Jackson. “The speed at which they worked was phenomenal.”
Together, we created a dashboard that enables users to see high-level trends and timelines, and also drill down on specific initiatives and moments in time to find bottlenecks.
