Each week, the Fast Track Tools training company and the Cubicle Ninjas design firm work together to publish a template that makes it easier for you to communicate your ideas. This week we bring you a library of “Harvey Balls,” better known as the little circles from Consumer Reports.

Maybe you have never heard of Harvey Balls? Wikipedia notes that


Harvey Poppel is generally credited with inventing Harvey Balls in the 1970s while working at Booz Allen Hamilton as a consultant.[2][3] This is why Harvey Balls are also sometimes referred to as Booz Balls. (!)

This free template will help you quickly present a visual story on the status of multiple items in a list.

As you can see in the free, downloadable template below, you have a table for making your list of items, a notes area for more detail and status column to place the Harvey Ball. Each of the different circles is defined in the legend at the bottom of the slide.
