What is a Waterfall Chart

A Waterfall chart (sometimes also called bridge chart) is a type of column chart.

It tracks changes from a starting to a final value. It begins with a starting value, followed by columns that rise or fall to show increases or decreases, and ends with a final total.

This makes it especially useful for detailing all the changes that contribute to a final number.

For example the above chart provides a clear visual representation of how different activities impact cash flow throughout a period.

But the Waterfall chart isn’t just for Finance. It can be applied in any area where you need to understand the contributing factor for change.

Another example: In Human Resources, a Waterfall chart can illustrate staffing changes over a year. Even if your department starts and ends the year with 50 employees, the chart could show that 20 resigned, 5 retired, and 25 were hired, providing a clear visual of high turnover and recruitment.

Such Waterfall charts help reveal hidden data dynamics. It makes complex info easy to understand at a glance.
