Reading that your country, a EU and G8 member, is the 65th best place to do business in the world isn’t enough: understanding what it means does.

A picture is worth a thousand words? Probably, in this case, millions (do not complain about the visual side: you can reuse it and improve its visual appeal).

Announce: I always had the idea of learning R to be able to share my number crunching in a more visually appealing way; thanks to Coursera and John Hopkins, it is now just a matter of few hours; therefore, I will soon add other number crunching examples... maybe along with R scripts to allow you to reuse them.

You can always find the (free) edition of my business books on http://www.slideshare.net/robertolofaro (sometimes full books, sometimes key chapters useful for your own publishing, consulting, training and overall change activities).

The (low price, of course!) printed and Kindle versions are available on http://astore.amazon.com/getarothewor-20

Aim: spread ideas, and collect feed-back (visit my profile http://www.linkedin.com/in/robertolofaro)

Thinking about "Doing Business 2014": understanding data

  1. 1. Reading that your country, a EU and G8 member, is the 65th best place to do business in the world isn’t enough: understanding what it means does. A picture is worth a thousand words? Probably, in this case, millions (do not complain about the visual side: you can reuse it and improve its visual appeal). 134 This small chart shows not only how each group is doing vs. the others, but also how cohesive is each group. Of course: the lower on the left-hand scale, the better. Aim: sharing some ideas visually- but based on data. 120 100 80 60 Italy 65 40 France 38 20 Germany 21 3 Legenda the «box» in the middle of each bar show where the countries «pack» the small lines above and below show the «range» of positions within the group the names are, hopefully, self-explanatory Prepared on 2013-11-27 on data from «Doing Business 2014», A World Bank Group publication Contact: http://www.linkedin.com/in/robertolofaro Creative Commons for Attribution http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ (i.e. use it as you see fit, just add the source and link) thanks to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFbPnwKwVWk for the example on how to do a box&whiskers with Excel
