You know Storm? A great project management suite based on Drupal. If there was a downside it's the fact that it's all good old html and navigation is therefore a bit outdated. This is now history: Storm Dashboard is a very powerful yet simple to use dashboard which needs just one pageload and everything else is done dynamically by using JQuery. It's all themeable and it does not require any configuration.
Just download it, install it and have fun dashboarding - dynamically!
