Overview

Creating Charts That Tell Stories

Visual communication and data visualization are our most effective tools to help organizations and customers understand the ideas found in the increasingly massive volumes of data that govern our lives. The ability to create diagrams that tell stories and move people will help you better communicate ideas as well as impress and persuade your audience.

This program will lay out the case for dataviz as a core management discipline and then answer the seemingly simple question, “What is a good chart?”

We’ll then walk through a simple process to help you turn your ordinary charts into more effective ones that far surpass what you would normally create with your spreadsheet program.
