It may be tempting to jump straight to visuals when starting your one-page report, but we suggest starting with a solid foundation. Defining the scope and intentions for your one-page report is important in enhancing its power to communicate data to your readers.

In this video, we will walk through the basic foundations of creating a one-page report. Starting with identifying your targeted audience, then moving on to writing a purpose statement, and prioritizing your one-page report information. We also share a great example from Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic’s book Storytelling with Data.
