What do the numbers tell you?

In the age of computers, we're often deluged with data. But too often, it's not in a helpful format, and its almost impossible to see patterns that you can draw conclusions from.

When you need to make (or recommend) a decision, you need to be able to 'tell the story'. Fortunately, as the saying goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words".

This week's TeamTips is all about converting data into a picture, using a technique called 'hostograms'
With seven easy-to-apply steps that'll take you less than three minutes to read, its packed with practical how-to tips that you should be able to put to work this week.

You can download the Hostograms article, or sign up for other free team leaders articles from the Sevenrings website.
