Treb Gatte explains how to build trust in KPIs:

Many Power BI reports and dashboards have simple, color-based indicators, commonly referred to as Key Performance Indicators or KPIs. These indicators provide a way to communicate the current condition of a monitored metric.

These KPIs require the data consumer to:
– Trust the data used to calculate it
– Understand the rule used to derive the indicator
– Understand the calculation used to set the value

Read on for good questions and a recommended design. Trust is critical, as people won’t look at dashboards whose data they don’t trust.
