The Prime Minister’s/President's Office needs to be informed on progress in real time to be effective. With the Prime Minister’s/President's Dashboard, critical information is instantly available, without the need for a phone call or email. Results can be reported by person, by ministry, by department or by policy. The Prime Minister’s/President's Dashboard can be configured to report on whatever the Prime Minister’s/President's Office needs to know to be effective. This may be a small number of politically important projects; it may be a current emergency; it may be the progress on each minister’s commitments; it may be the status of national security issues or important trade negotiations; or it may be the performance contracts of political appointees and civil servants.
