Top 10 Ways to Make Your Business Reports IBCS Compliant
Business reports are used in a variety of contexts, and are created by multiple departments, often in isolation, for many purposes. Each department tends to customize their reports in the way they believe most effectively transmits their ideas and the underlying data; however, too much creative diversity can have the opposite effect. When executives and analysts rely on many different reports to draw insights and make decisions, standardization becomes much more important than creative differentiation.
This was the main driver for the creation of the International Business Communication Standards (IBCS). This 150-page document outlines best practices for the design of reports, presentations, and dashboards, including the content, visual perception, and application of semantic notation.
