Welcome to the Mekko Graphics 5.5 webinar training! Thank you for taking the time to join us this morning. It is a great time to join us as Mekko Graphics 5.5 launched earlier this year to great reviews. In the next 90 minutes we will give you the tools that will empower you to use Mekko Graphics 5.5. Let’s get started with a quick poll to find out where you are in this process so I can better tailor this presentation to you: *****toggle Content / Poll*****It looks like a majority of this group *******, so I will spend more time *******.*****Click Content Desktop******QUESTIONSJust a quick side note on questions: If you have a question, please send them via live meeting on the Q&A tab, that way we’ll keep moving along and have time to get through the prepared content. If we don’t have time to get to all the questions, I will respond privately. PACEIn addition, I’ll be checking in to see if I am moving at the right pace. To help with this, there is a green button in the upper right corner of your screen where you can indicate whether we need to slow down. If that is the case, please select the appropriate option.VERSIONSAlso, I will be doing this training using Mekko Graphics 5.5 and Office 2010. On your screen you will see the agenda . Let’s get started!
Mekko Graphics software allows you to create compelling charts with just a few clicks of your mouse, even using large, complex data sets. With seamless PowerPoint integration and strategy-oriented features, Mekko Graphics can significantly reduce the time you spend creating and editing charts. Features of Mekko Graphics:32 chart types including: Marimekko, Bar-Mekko, Cascade (Waterfall) and many varieties of bar, line, bubble and scatter chartsExclusive ability to convert among 32 chart types to find the one that best tells the storyOur custom Mekko Graphics PowerPoint ribbon and Quick Launch feature allow you to add a complex chart to your slide with one mouse clickMekko Graphics 5.5:Insert one, two, three or four charts to a slide with ONE clickQuick launch ANY of our 32 chart typesNEW! Automatically computed average linesNEW! Growth lines that highlight the percentage change in your data with ONE click. NEW! Color shade options that allow you to produce your charts in shades of red, green, blue and gray.
Mekko Graphics is easy to use!Open PowerPointClick on the Mekko Graphics TabNotice all the new Mekko Graphics buttons!!Click the Chart Type you wish to useAdd your dataFine tuneLet’s go ahead and do that so you can see it in action!
Go to the Mekko Graphics TabYou’ll notice a whole host of new buttons pertaining to charts. Simply click on the chart that you wish to create or click on “New Mekko Chart” to bring up the chart wizard. NOTE: You can now “quick launch” any of our 32 charts!! If you wish to include more than one chart on a page, click on “New Mekko Chart” From there you will be able to place 1, 2, 3 or 4 charts on a page. Double Click on ChartSelect a chart (bar chart)Click okay. You’ll notice the chart now inserts pre-populated with sample data. The next step is to replace the sample data with your own data either by entering the data, copying/pasting or linking to Excel.
Let’s go over one method of inserting a chart.Go to the Mekko Graphics TabNew Mekko Chart Double Click on Chart and choose stacked barPaste in new dataPASTE DATAIf you are completely new to Mekko Graphics, three of the most important buttons are: Default Format View/Data View/Combo View. (Toggle between the three.) I like to stay on the combo view so I can see my chart dynamically draw.Copy/paste data –Notice “multi-color” Format. Later in this presentation I will demonstrate how you can set these values as defaults. Axes title and units – “Footwear Sales in $Million”Series Comparison LinesBar Totals – format to $Show Labels Show all labelsFormat Numbers – segment values to $Show Legend / Order / AppearanceNEW Show Growth Lines – Highlights the percentage change in your data with ONE click. Can manually edit. NEW Show shading – color option.
The next chart I am going to review is the Cascade or Waterfall chart. A note about the Cascade Chart: It is unique chart to Mekko Graphics – not avail to ExcelCategorize revenue or cost components of a market segment, as defined by the data series being measured. Each bar in the chart is related to and affected by surrounding bar values.
Don’t use Quick Launch. Again go to Insert Mekko Chart and choose CascadeCopy/paste dataAgain, “Multi Color” is selected as the default in the Preference ManagerFormat SeriesChange color of a segment to dark blueAxes title and units (“Sales by Category in $Million”)Format Segments TabTotal Cascade Bars – select the segment you would like to go to zero – Click on TOTAL (The total bar will start on the X axis)Format NUMBERS – change to 2 decimal places and make the units “B” for billions for bar totalsLabels – BARS drop down HIDE ALL SEGMENT LABELS and then SHOW LEGENDFormat Labels/OrientationRotate all X axes labels You’ll notice that some labels are not placed. Go to the Label Manager and smart place all Unplaced labelsChart/Type:Change Chart type to Cascade Horizontal and back again
Marimekko: - is not available in Excel or PPT.Compare values along two variables: segment height (Y axis) is percent of bar total and bar width (X axis) is percent of summed bar totals (percent of Grand total). For example: The Marimekko Chart provides an excellent vehicle for displaying a market map—sales by competitor by market segment. Think of it as a 100% stacked bar that can be stretched, so the bar width provides additional data. The same data is also displayed in a 100% stacked bar and a horizontal cluster bar.
This time, we’ll use the Quick Launch menu. Go to the Marimekko drop down and choose MarimekkoCopy/paste dataAxes title and units _ Footwear Sales in $MillionSeries (Rows)Sort – biggest on the bottom/topBars (Columns)Sort – biggest on the left/rightShow #.# Totals click on/offOther: (Designate particular segments or series to be part of the “Other” series) Format/Series/Other SeriesCreate newSegment value less than: 500View by series (if nec)Format /NumbersShow currency and unitsLabelsSmart place all unplaced labelsRight click to restore allIn-place label editRotateAnnotate (NOTE: don’t annotate from label placement. Place and draw.)To Calculate Width = Width Bar = Total Bar / Total Chart (Can see a percentage of the whole)
PREFERENCE MANAGERNow that you are familiar with Mekko Graphics, I want to show you the Preference Manager, which is a tool that will help you set up your preferences like:- Your color palette - Your default font and size - Your region and apply regional settingsIt will also help you adhere to your company brand standardsLet’s begin by opening the Preference Manager. We have given you the freedom to select endless colors and variations and the ability to add these to your chart to give you flexibility and also help maintain brand standards and aid compliance.

X-Y Linear Bubble ChartBubble charts are great for showing correlational data.Linear Bubble charts allow you to plot 3 variables simultaneously on a linear scale. X and Y variables indicate how one item (X) varies in relation to another (Y), and bubble size indicates relative scale.You can identify the high growth companies in each market segment and determine if these also are relatively big or small. The reference bubble provides information on the meaning of bubble size.
Quick Launch Mekko Bubble X-Y Linear Bubble ChartCopy/paste dataAxes title and units – Y axis – International Sales Growth 2010-2011 Change the units to % X axis – US Sales Growth 2010-2011 Change the units to % Reference Bubble - SalesSeries (Rows)Outlier – (FILA)Demonstrate: Go to Fila and make it an outlier (FormatSeries->Outlier-> Fila). Quadrant linesAxesReference Bubble – Value Computed / Hide bubbleShow Labels / TextShow Series NameOutlier Series:Outlier has values that are very different from the rest of the group and is skewing the data. . They might be genuine properties of the data or may be due to some measurement error or other anomaly. So, in order to best demonstrate the message of your chart, you can designate any data point(s) as outliers. Doing so will automatically adjust your chart scale according to the remaining data. You may set that point as an Outlier on your chart to acknowledge that it exists but that it is not taken into account when calculating the other data. You may also remove that data point from the Normative Band. The numbers appearing in the Outlier bubble represent the XY coordinates of the outlier.
Here is a basic Cluster Bar Chart . Cluster Bar: Display data along the X axis as it changes over time or cluster bars together to illustrate comparisons among items for a given data series, or multiple series.

2Y Stacked Bar Line: Combine the dynamics of a stacked bar chart and a line chart. Use the 2Y axis when the range of values vary greatly for different data series, or when you are showing mixed types of data (e.g. price and volume) where one or more series is plotted against the secondary axis.Business Application Why do we use a 2Y chart?2nd Axis is only for Lines

Bar Mekko: Variable width stacked bar. Compare values along two variables, the X and Y axes. Two types exist:- Single variable: displays a single data series (e.g. sales) plotted against the X and Y axis- Double variable: displays two data series (e.g. ROS and sales). ROS is plotted against Y axis and Sales is plotted against X axis as a 'user-defined width'.
