I absolutely love art like this! The artist is so in touch with the perspective of the camera/viewer that they can trick our eye into making a two-dimensional piece of art seem three-dimensional. But it’s not a trick, it’s just good use of perspective.
Let’s take the below example. It shows a more typical Gantt chart that will allow me to see everything lined up in sequence, with swimlanes organized by phase and colors representing resources. From this perspective, I essentially just get an overall idea of what is happening and when, along with who is doing the work.
If I take the same data and modify the swimlanes and colors to be grouped by resources, it allows me a very clear view of the activities each resource is assigned over the entire initiative, at any given point in time. It may even show me where some resources are over-allocated. It is a very different perspective of the same data and all we did was organize it another way with a quick change to a setting.
In OnePager, you can use any of your columns to group your data in different ways to provide a different perspective. Each perspective might tell you or your audience a different story or highlight important information about an aspect of your initiative.
If you have any questions about how to try this, please send me a note at [email protected] and I’d be happy to show you!
