Bullet Chart Template for Excel
Tired of Complicated Dashboard Gauges and Radial Meters?
Bullet Charts provide astounding representation of analysis with minimal usage of space, and they are quite easy to read!
Bullet Chart Overview
Developed by Stephen Few, the Bullet Chart was inspired from a traditional bar chart. It is used as an alternative to Dashboard Gauges and Radial Meters, as it removes excessive clutter in showcasing your current performance level.
The Bullet Chart offers a single measure, which relates to defined quantitative ranges and declares its qualitative state. It then displays contextual output of qualitative ranges pertaining to performance levels of Low, Mid and High. These ranges are displayed in hue variations, which makes them readable by those who are color blind.
