A bullet chart is a relatively new kind of chart invented by Stephen Few. I was pleasantly surprised to see one in a recent copy of The Wall Street Journal. A bullet chart looks like a column chart “within” a column chart. It is a great way to compare 2 series of data together. For example, sales figures from 2 different years.
During our “Creating Executive Dashboards in Excel” course, I’m going to talk in detail how to create such bullet charts in Excel. They are a very compact way to display key performance indicators (KPIs). It can compare actual performance with “Poor Performance”, “Satisfactory Performance” and “Excellent Performance” levels all within a tiny bullet chart.
