    Organizations use Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to monitor whether they attain their goals. To support organizations at tracking the performance of their business, software vendors offer dashboards to these organizations. For the development of the dashboards that will engage organizations and enable them to make informed decisions, software vendors leverage dashboard design principles. However, the dashboard design principles available in the literature are expressed as natural language texts. Therefore, software vendors and organizations either do not use them or spend significant efforts to internalize and apply them literally in every engaging dashboard development process. We show that engaging dashboards for organizations can be automatically generated by means of automatically visualized KPIs. In this context, we present our novel approach for the automated generation of engaging dashboards for organizations. The approach employs the decision model for visualizing KPIs that is developed based on the dashboard design principles in the literature. We implemented our approach and evaluated its quality in a case study.
