Creating an Individual axes chart

Just showing a single measure may not always give us a complete picture. For example, a bar chart showing region-wide sales only gives us information about how much sales each region has done. Although this is useful information for us, there isn't much insight in it to take any decisions. This would be even more useful to us if we could compare the sales of each region with targets of those regions. This way we could find out which regions are not meeting their targets and which regions are hitting or over-achieving the target.
