DataViz—Business Ideas with Incredible Power

Analysis Analytics Bar graph Chart Data Information Concept

A good visualization can communicate business ideas with incredible power, but for a long time, “dataviz” has been left to specialists—data scientists and professional designers. No longer.

A new generation of tools and massive amounts of data make it easy for anyone to create visualizations that communicate ideas more effectively than spreadsheet charts ever could.

What’s more, building good charts is quickly becoming a need-to-have skill for managers. If you’re not doing it, another manager is, and they’re getting noticed for it. In the recently published Good Charts: The HBR Guide to Making Smarter, More Persuasive Data Visualizations, dataviz maven Scott Berinato provides an essential guide on how visualization works and how to use this new language to impress and persuade.

In an interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, sponsored by TIBCO, Berinato shares insights on data visualization from his years of experience and from this new book. He describes how to turn uninspiring charts that merely present information into smart, effective visualizations that powerfully convey ideas.
