Meaningful Graphs is a concise and practical go-to guide for creating charts in Excel (r) that clearly and accurately tell the story in your data. It incorporates (a) explanations of the graph design principles of the experts (Tufte, Few, Robbins, Zelazny, and others), (b) the software steps necessary to incorporate these principles into Excel (r) charts, and (c) chart-related discussions of quality improvement (including Pareto charts), statistics (including run charts and correlations), and the use of graphs in PowerPoint (r) presentations (including chart animation). Also included are numerous "Tips" and "In Practice" examples drawn from over 35 years of working with data in healthcare settings. Coverage begins with highlighting the importance of knowing the story in your data and general principles of chart design (e.g., chartjunk, the use of color, consideration of three dimensional charts) and then proceeds to examine and create the five major chart types (column, bar, line, pie, scatter). This is followed by considerations of the pros and cons of each of the six less frequently employed chart types. There are over 120 graphs in full color plus tables and illustrations. Discussions of the most useful chart types include examples with accompanying data to facilitate practice. While illustrations are especially tailored for healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, patient safety, quality improvement staff, executives, and managers) both in their work setting and in their academic preparation, the principles of graph design and the Excel (r) techniques required to incorporate these principles apply equally well in other settings. The latter include other industries and academic programs, including those leading to degrees in business administration (MBA), public health (MPH), and public administration (MPA). If you follow the advice in this book, the graphs you create for reports, presentations, posters, or publications will be more informative and more easily understo

Graph-structured data is ubiquitous throughout the natural and social sciences, from telecommunication networks to quantum chemistry. Building relational inductive biases into deep learning architectures is crucial for creating systems that can learn, reason, and generalize from this kind of data. Recent years have seen a surge in research on graph representation learning, including techniques for deep graph embeddings, generalizations of convolutional neural networks to graph-structured data, and neural message-passing approaches inspired by belief propagation. These advances in graph representation learning have led to new state-of-the-art results in numerous domains, including chemical synthesis, 3D vision, recommender systems, question answering, and social network analysis. This book provides a synthesis and overview of graph representation learning. It begins with a discussion of the goals of graph representation learning as well as key methodological foundations in graph theory and network analysis. Following this, the book introduces and reviews methods for learning node embeddings, including random-walk-based methods and applications to knowledge graphs. It then provides a technical synthesis and introduction to the highly successful graph neural network (GNN) formalism, which has become a dominant and fast-growing paradigm for deep learning with graph data. The book concludes with a synthesis of recent advancements in deep generative models for graphs—a nascent but quickly growing subset of graph representation learning.

Today's most successful companies are Intelligent Companies that use the best available data to inform their decision making. This is called Evidence-Based Management and is one of the fastest growing business trends of our times. Intelligent Companies bring together tools such as Business Intelligence, Analytics, Key Performance Indicators, Balanced Scorecards, Management Reporting and Strategic Decision Making to generate real competitive advantages. As information and data volumes grow at explosive rates, the challenges of managing this information is turning into a losing battle for most companies and they end up drowning in data while thirsting for insights. This is made worse by the severe skills shortage in analytics, data presentation and communication. This latest book by best-selling management expert Bernard Marr will equip you with a set of powerful skills that are vital for successful managers now and in the future. Increase your market value by gaining essential skills that are in high demand but in short supply. Loaded with practical step-by-step guidance, simple tools and real life examples of how leading organizations such as Google, CocaCola, Capital One, Saatchi & Saatchi, Tesco, Yahoo, as well as Government Departments and Agencies have put the principles into practice. The five steps to more intelligent decision making are: Step 1: More intelligent strategies – by identifying strategic priorities and agreeing your real information needs Step 2: More intelligent data – by creating relevant and meaningful performance indicators and qualitative management information linked back to your strategic information needs Step 3: More intelligent insights – by using good evidence to test and prove ideas and by analysing the data to gain robust and reliable insights Step 4: More intelligent communication – by creating informative and engaging management information packs and dashboards that provide the essential information, packaged in an easy-to-read way Step 5: More intelligent decision making – by fostering an evidence-based culture of turning information into actionable knowledge and real decisions "Bernard Marr did it again!

The revised and updated edition of this bestselling text provides an accessible introduction to the theory and practice of network analysis in the social sciences. It gives a clear and authoritative guide to the general framework of network analysis, explaining the basic concepts, technical measures and reviewing the available computer programs. The book outlines both the theoretical basis of network analysis and the key techniques for using it as a research tool. Building upon definitions of points, lines and paths, John Scott demonstrates their use in clarifying such measures as density, fragmentation and centralization. He identifies the various cliques, components and circles into which networks are formed, and outlines an approach to the study of socially structured positions. He also discusses the use of multidimensional methods for investigating social networks. Social Network Analysis is an invaluable resource for researchers across the social sciences and for students of social theory and research methods.
