Find the right chart type for your diagram


in this edition I would like to present you a very useful slide that you an use for finding the right chart type in your presentations.

Many people just randomly select a chart type in PowerPoint or Excel. But actually there are always certain types that work and others that don`t depending on your dataset your are presenting.

Let`s take a look at this slide:

To find the right chart type you should first of all know what the data comparison type is. Here we have 5 different options: Component, Item, Time Series, Frequency, Correlation.

Once you have done that, identify the right diagram type. Many chart types exist, but we can reduce it to 5 main types: Pie Chart, Bar Chart, Column Chart, Line Chart, Dot Chart.

You can see that it is actually not very hard to find the right chart type if you take these simple rules into consideration. I hope this slide was useful to you.

I wish you the best of luck for your presentation work.
