Use case example: Revenue by original source
The pie of pie chart above presents a high level view of proportions of total number of leads generated by an organization from each of the 8 lead generation / origination sources.
Pie chart tends to get cluttered and difficult to read when there are more than 5 – 6 categories. This limitation can be overcome by using pie of pie chart in which smaller categories are clubbed as ‘other’ and shown in a secondary pie chart (as a part of primary pie chart).
