This visual although very simple seems to convey the clear trend for each industry and how the productivity has increased over the years.

And did you notice how the productivity for all the industries kind of merges to the value 100 for the year 2007. This information was not readily visible in the case of the pivot table.

This two visuals clearly demonstrates the power of different visualizations to convey the message.
