Share Your Data Charts
As you gather data from various sources within your organization and prepare to tell your data-driven story for continuous improvement, you will encounter visual representations of those data in various charts. These could take many different forms depending on the purpose of the data representation and the level of statistical sophistication of the intended consumers. They may include pie charts, cluster column charts, scatter charts, or line charts. These may be in pivotal chart format and include tables. More detailed charts might include box and whisker charts to demonstrate range of confidence levels, histograms, treemaps, waterfall charts, funnel charts, sunburst, radar and stock charts, each with its own purpose and advantages. There are also combo charts that overlay data visuals.
For this discussion, present one or two different charts or graphs that you have discovered in your quest for data to drive your narrative and explain the chart, speculating as to why this is or is not an appropriate choice of presentation and what might be a better way to visualize these data representations.
Note To ensure confidentiality, redact the name of your institution and or any other identifying material.
In the unlikely event that you cannot find any data representations, visuals, charts, or graphs in your organization, you may use MS Excel to create your charts or other graphics from raw data tables.
For your discussion:
Choose and share at least two data charts that will inform your narrative project for this course.
Remember to conceal the name of your organization or any other information that might breach confidentiality.
Summarize the content of these charts and indicate what exactly they are representing. Include who you believe to be the intended consumer of these data visualizations.
Comment on the adequacy of the choice of format for these data representations. If they are inadequate, what might be a better choice of format?
Identify any data or information absent from the chart that would improve its interpretation by the consumer.
Speculate as to how these charts could encourage and support the continuous improvement processes in your organization.
In addition, share any resources about quantitative concepts and statistics you have found particularly helpful thus far.
