How to Draw a Divided Bar Chart in ConceptDraw PRO

A divided bar graph is a rectangle divided into smaller rectangles along its length in proportion to the data. Segments in a divided bar represent a set of quantities according to the different proportion of the total amount. A divided bar diagram is created using rectangular bars to depict proportionally the size of each category. The bars in a divided bar graph can be vertical or horizontal. The size of the each rectangle displays the part that each category represents. The value of the exact size of the whole must be known, because the each section of the bar displays a piece of that value. A divided bar diagram is rather similar to a sector diagram in that the bar shows the entire data amount and the bar is divided into several parts to represent the proportional size of each category. ConceptDraw PRO in conjunction with Divided Bar Diagrams solution provides tools to create stylish divided bar charts for your presentations. Read more

How to Create a Bar Chart in ConceptDraw PRO

Bar charts (bar graphs) are diagrams displaying data as horizontal or vertical bars of certain heights. Bar charts are widely used to show and compare the values of the same parameters for different data groups. The bar graph can be vertical or horizontal. This depends on the amount of categories. There are many methods in which bar graph can be built and this makes it a very often used chart type. Usually, a bar chart is created so that the bars are placed vertically. Such arrangement means that the bar's height value is proportional to the category value. Nevertheless, a bar chart can be also drawn horizontally. This means that the longer the bar, the bigger the category. Thus, a bar chart is a good way to present the relative values of different measured items. The ConceptDraw Bar Graphs solution allows you to draw a bar chart quickly using a vector library, containing the set of various bar charts objects. Read more

How to Draw a Scatter Diagram Using ConceptDraw PRO

Scatter Diagrams are used to visualize how a change in one variable affects another. A Scatter Diagram displays the data as a set of points in a coordinate system. It combines these values into single data points and displays them in uneven intervals. A Scatter Diagram can be very useful to for identifying relationships between variables, for example the relationship of price and quality rating. Making a Scatter Diagram involves many different elements that can be managed using ConceptDraw Scatter Diagram solution. Read more

"Porter five forces analysis is a framework for industry analysis and business strategy development. It draws upon industrial organization (IO) economics to derive five forces that determine the competitive intensity and therefore attractiveness of a market. Attractiveness in this context refers to the overall industry profitability. An "unattractive" industry is one in which the combination of these five forces acts to drive down overall profitability. A very unattractive industry would be one approaching "pure competition", in which available profits for all firms are driven to normal profit.
Three of Porter's five forces refer to competition from external sources. The remainder are internal threats.
Porter referred to these forces as the micro environment, to contrast it with the more general term macro environment. They consist of those forces close to a company that affect its ability to serve its customers and make a profit. A change in any of the forces normally requires a business unit to re-assess the marketplace given the overall change in industry information. The overall industry attractiveness does not imply that every firm in the industry will return the same profitability. Firms are able to apply their core competencies, business model or network to achieve a profit above the industry average. A clear example of this is the airline industry. As an industry, profitability is low and yet individual companies, by applying unique business models, have been able to make a return in excess of the industry average.
Porter's five forces include - three forces from 'horizontal' competition: the threat of substitute products or services, the threat of established rivals, and the threat of new entrants; and two forces from 'vertical' competition: the bargaining power of suppliers and the bargaining power of customers.
This five forces analysis, is just one part of the complete Porter strategic models. The other elements are the value chain and the generic strategies." [Porter five forces analysis. Wikipedia]
The block diagram example "Porter's five forces model" was created using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software extended with the Block Diagrams solution from the area "What is a Diagram" of ConceptDraw Solution Park. Read more
