Creating the 1-Second Chart

Design a Chart That Tells the Story in One Second!

The amount of business data available for reporting and analysis is skyrocketing. And every day it becomes more and more critical for you to communicate the meaning and actionable insights with your data as clearly and quickly as possible.

But are you asking your stakeholders to invest too much time attempting to understand the meaning of your numbers?

It’s no longer good enough to simply throw a series of pie charts on slides or in a report and expect your audience to understand the story behind those charts. It’s the message of the data that matters and leads to effective business decisions, and bad charts = bad decision-making.

This gives you a set of tools and techniques to present complex data in a manner that conveys important ideas effectively. In a nutshell, you’ll learn how to present your data in a “1-second chart™” that is easy to interpret.

A 1-second chart is not a chart that takes 1 second to create (as much as we would like that!), but one that takes your audience 1 second to read and understand.

If your day-to-day work involves creating even a single bar chart on an Excel spreadsheet or PowerPoint slide, this is for you.
