Effective Information Visualization

With today's technology we are swimming in data.  But this data can be useless if we are not able to react to it.  Information needs to be displayed in an easy to interpret manner.  In a previous post I talked about the visualization techniques of Matthias Shapiro in terms of current events.  Now he walks us through the visualization techniques that can be used to figure out what a data set is trying to tell us.



When you are in the Gemba look at your visual information boards and consider the techniques in this video to see if your visualization is effective.  Ask the employees in the area what story the information tells.  If you get the answer you are looking for then it is effective.  If not change the way the inormation is displayed.
