Why use a Waterfall Chart?
A waterfall chart or a bridge chart is a very liked chart by Management. For good reason too. They provide an effective way of visualizing your data that helps you understand how you got from one balance to another balance. They are common for financial figures – they allow you to see the profit development – how you got from gross sales to net income or how your earnings developed from last year to this year. But they are also a good story teller for non-financial data.
Do you use Excel add-ins for your Waterfall or struggle with your data preparation?
Many people use Excel add-ins to create the Waterfall chart. Why? Because they save on the frustration and headache that comes with preparing the data properly for the charts. It can get really confusing and end up costing a lot of time. On the downside, sometime add-ins can't do exactly what you'd like and for some charts you might want to do it from scratch.
