The worst thing about the KPMG graphic is the color choice. If they'd made the dark blue Innovations, then the teal would be a visual metaphor for the combination. Instead they made dark blue stand for a combination of green and teal - makes no sense.

The second worst thing is that with the portions so close (each is about a third) it's difficult to get any information out of the visual of the circle at a glance.

Then there's the banality of the apparent question asked.

The least significant bad thing about it is the percentages not adding up to 100.
