EX 4  Add comparisons

 

Visual perception is strongly based on setting one perceived object in relation to another. Adding meaningful comparisons helps the eye evaluate faster, the main purpose of charts.

 

EX 4.1  Add scenarios

Scenarios such as “plan” and “previous year” are the most common references for comparison purposes. Add them whenever available. Use a standardized scenario notation for faster comprehension, see figure SUCCESS rule EX 4.1.
 

EX 4.2  Add variances

Having added scenarios for comparison purposes, the visualization of variances makes it easier to evaluate the situation. Use a standardized notation of variances for faster comprehension, see figure SUCCESS rule EX 4.2.
