Have you noticed that graphics containing concentric circles seem to have a long lasting recall factor? The Wikipedia says ‘Concentric objects share the same center, axis or origin.’ Based on this, doesn’t it make sense to use illustrations of concentric circles to present any issue that revolves around a focus area in presentations? Circle graphics can be used to represent multiple nuclei or urban planning models, health issues, or strategy planning ideas.
In an interesting article titled ‘How to use circles to tell the performance story,’ the authors state that people don’t bother to read lengthy planning or reporting documents and that the management team must address these issues with compelling graphics preferably in the form of concentric circles. The reasoning behind this is that concentric circles can be used to represent the concepts such as ‘the scope and extent of influence’ and ‘flow of activity between split tasks’ successfully.
Concentric circles can be used when you have to highlight a focus area and the issues affecting it. These diagrams containing combination of spheres of influence and performance logic can be used for scenario planning, risk assessment, performance measurement, and more.
