Oh, how I love learning new words for Words of the Week! I was sitting in a meeting last week, and our VP of Marketing presented a new idea for a cockpit of business metrics. “A cockpit,” I thought, “what on earth is that?”
It turns out that a cockpit is a collection of dashboards, the ultimate tool for understanding the state of a business, updateable every month and neatly presented in one Excel workbook.
