Not only are many resources nuanced and cross-dependent, but in the case of people (and yes, I know team members hate to be called “resources”), they are also unpredictable. What makes matters worse is that project expectations are not always fully fleshed out by the target beginning date, so project managers have to juggle unknowns with all the other volatile resources. In other words: project management resource allocation stinks–and reporting based off this faulty data doesn’t make it much better.

What’s not to like? Colored charts and illustrations deliver connections better than tables and figures and as users spend time looking back and forth the full infographic, they stay on the site longer. Plus, readers who like what they see are more likely to share visual guides more than articles. While not everyone can make infographics from scratch, there are tools available on the Web that will help you create your very own infographics.

And we’ve loved hearing from teachers who have been using it in exciting ways, like exploring music and its connections to science, math, art, dance, and more. For this year’s Music in Our Schools Month, we’ve added a new experiment to the website called Song Maker. It’s a simple way for anyone to make a song, then share it with a link—no need to log in or make an account. Anyone can instantly hear what you made, and even riff on it to make their own song. It lives on the web, so you don’t need to install any apps to try it.

9 Interesting Infographics About Color Color, one of the most overlooked and yet important elements to our every day lives. Because of the makeup of our brains, and the correlations between sight and perception, we are affected on a very deep level by color.
