The Influence of Social Media Tools Data Visualization Format on Decision Making in Project Management

The primary objective of this post is to discuss “the Influence of Social Media Tools Data Visualization Format on Decision Making in Project Management,” and to understand the benefits that project managers have when using Data Visualization formats for managing projects.

The objective is to discuss the influence of new types of visualization used by some Social Media Tools, and not the discuss themselves. The research results are analyzed from the perspective of a project manager.

Most researchers are focused on data visualization itself, but the value of this study is the focus on the influence that the format has over project managers decision making. What makes it more unique is that the analysis circles over the tools used, and not on the Social Media themselves.

 “By visualizing data, we turn it into a landscape that you can explore with your eyes, a sort of information map, when you are lost in data, an information map is… useful.”  McCandless’s quote as cited in Cuesta and Kumar (2016, p. 6).

Even though McCandless stresses the importance of displaying data or information (Cuesta & Kumar, 2016, p. 56), it is easier to agree on the significance of data visualization than to recognize the type of data visualizing formats that are appropriate to use for a specific sector.”

What's a project failure?

What do you consider is a project failure?

If you Google the definition, you'll find that A project is considered a failure when it has not delivered what was required, in line with expectations. Therefore, in order to succeed, a project must deliver to cost, to quality, and on time; and it must deliver the benefits presented in the business case.

 

But more than just a definition, I would like you to express what have been your experiences regarding this topic.
