Why use PowerPoint infographics to show percentage completion?
Whether it is a project report or business update – a slide showing percentage completion is a necessary part of most business presentations.
The usual way of showing percentage completion is to use either a boring bar chart or pie chart.
. In this article, we will see some interesting alternatives to show percentage completion using PowerPoint Info graphics. All alternatives use interesting visual metaphors to convey the message.
Note: All the data slide templates you see in this article are part of ‘Visual PowerPoint Graphs Pack’. The templates are fully data driven and are surprisingly easy to use. You just need to replace sample data in the embedded worksheet with your own data. The chart updates itself automatically. All the charts you see here require you to replace just one number that indicates percentage completion.
1.Using ‘level of fill’ as an indicator:
A glass jar filled with liquid is a simple metaphor to represent percentage completion. The following data driven info graphic uses the metaphor in an elegant way:

It is almost impossible to believe that the above PowerPoint infographics are completely data driven. To edit the chart you just need to change one number in the embedded worksheet.
So, with a bit of imagination it is possible to create visually stunning data slides that make your message memorable. However, creating data driven info graphics from the scratch takes a lot of effort and time. Most business presenters don’t have the time it takes to make such memorable slides, and hence settle for the ‘usual’ mediocre slides.
