Data visualization is one of today’s hottest buzzwords in FP&A, and the conventional wisdom is that pictures and graphs always work better than tables. NOT NECESSARILY! Done poorly or thoughtlessly, graphical numbers presentations not only will fail to get your most important points across, but may cause your audience to question your professionalism and even your integrity.

Four basic questions that all too few FP&A practitioners ever bother to ask themselves are at the core of clear and effective use of data visualization. We’ll examine each of those four questions, why it’s important, and how to think through the answers to them.

Learning Objectives

After attending this event you will be able to:
Use a logical framework for thinking through the best way to present numerical information in any specific situation
Appreciate the various ways complex numerical information can be presented, and the advantages and disadvantages of each
Understand how your audience processes visual and tabular information, and how that affects their perception you as a professional
