I came across this post by Andy Cotgreave about features to use in an interactive dashboard as those created in Tableau.
He deconstructed a dashboard (a bit meta there, right?) to quantify the Impact vs Difficulty of each of the design choices you can potentially make. You can see a screenshot below, but you can play with the interactive version in the link above.
that looks like a BCS matrix that we just studied in managment
BCG matrix perhaps?
