Chart of the Month – July 2011 – Almost Silos
This Chart of the Month uses common-enough graphics in an uncommon way: to illustrate the degree that entities overlap or interact. The message can be changed simply by changing the width of the segmented triangles and the degree to which they overlap. The segmented triangles can also show hierarchy or levels of functionality within the entity.
Silos are an easy-to-show concept, but the process of becoming or eliminating silos isn't until now. Use this idea with the segmented triangles provided in the Hierarchy Category.
