Project Portfolio Management
A heat map where each rectangle, or cell, represents an individual project. The size of each project corresponds to its budget and the color corresponds the cost overrun. Green projects are within an acceptable cost overrun, yellow projects are marginal and red projects are in trouble. Projects are initially grouped by Project Manager, and then by Region, making several things readily apparent:
- Trend: Jason is behind on almost all projects and should be helped or fired
- Allocation: Gary has many projects and looks to be overloaded since several of them, some quite large, are falling behind. Consider offloading some of his work to others who are doing well but are not overloaded.
- Relationship: Mary has an issue in the Atlanta office (only).
- Anomaly: Rangit has a CRITICAL issue in the SF office (only).

A heat map where each rectangle, or cell, represents a stock. The size of each stock corresponds to its market cap and the color corresponds the percent change since last close. Green stocks have gone up while red stocks have gone down.
A heat map where each rectangle, or cell, represents a car. The size of each car corresponds to its annual fuel cost and the color corresponds the highway miles per gallon. Cars are grouped first by type of car, then my make. Green and blue cars get good mileages, while yellow and red cars get bad mileage. Use the search box above the heat map to search for a specific make or model.
