DVD training video based on the popular book "How to Lie with Charts" by Gerald Everett Jones. Keynote seminar with the author, presented to the annual Operational Excellence conference of a major corporation. Includes more than 100 slides and examples of good and bad visual presentation practices.
The main focus of "How to Lie with Charts" is the principles of persuasive - and undistorted - visual communication. It's about careful thinking and clear expression.
[DVD version includes 3min bonus review slideshow]
According to the author: If you're using a computer to generate charts for meetings and reports, you don't have to be taught how to lie with charts - you're already doing it. You probably don't know your charts are unreliable, and neither does your audience. So you're getting away with it - until a manager or a sales prospect or an investor makes a bad decision based on the information that you were so helpful to provide.
About the book:
"Gerald Jones updates Mark Twain's adage 'lies, damned lies, and statistics' to its modern sequel about charts and graphics. Every corporate director subjected to PowerPoint presentations needs to read this for his/her own protection." - Richard E. Cavanagh, Past President and CEO, The Conference Board, Inc.
