Chart Busters hero image

It's Weird Chart Day! In this TC Dojo we explore good charts gone bad! Sometimes it is easier to learn by example and some of the best lessons can be learned from bad examples.

Sara Doan walks through some stunning charts that had epic failures. The intention may have been good but they failed to deliver the intended message. We'll learn what not to do if you want to impress with stunning presentation and impeccable accuracy.
