This Chart of the Month uses the concept of moving through the gears in a vehicle to illustrate swift acceleration toward a goal. You might also use this type of a chart to illustrate the different stages of gaining optimal speed or effectiveness. Download the animated example and use it as a basis for your own message concept.
You can change the animation to occur on clicks or however you wish, but the animation is already set up to move from one gearshift position to the next.
It's always nice to have a theme for a presentation and then support it with graphics that expand on the theme. Consider using a nice picture of a road and horizon or other goal-oriented image. The one we've chosen for the background is supposed to imply extreme speed. Enjoy using this concept.
