Book Club – Visualize Differently

Posted by Author, Curator, Visually Impared Squirrel Literacy Advocate & Dynamics AX Technical Solution Professional (TSP) at Microsoft on

Although this may not be true, I’m sure that Edward Tufte does think about it, because he is the Strunk & White for information design and visual literacy.

When you boil ERP down to the bare bones, it is just a way to gather information, and all our customers really want from an ERP system is to present the information back to them so that they can understand how they are doing. If you can do that in an elegant, and informative way then the ERP system is a success.

Tufte’s books are definitely ones that you look at for the pictures.

If you haven’t checked any of them out, then just browse through them the next time you’re at the book store. Maybe they will inspire you to look at information a little differently.
