Better way to add data for generating graph by person

I need a better way for staff to enter data in order to generate a graphs. Preferably, the graph display would be on a single page, and you would simply select the person with a radio or list button and the graph would display automagically.
details: In the sheet 'Graph Data Entry' I have four staff who need to enter the same data. I would like to:
Allow data entry easier for the staff w/o scrolling around, but this is just a nicety.
I want to be able to display a single person's graph on sheet 'Team Dashboard WIP', by just selecting the person with list, combo, or radio control.

See attached - I've added a data validation list for the list of people and some formulas above the chart (you can simply position the chart over the formulas to hide them).

Code Used

Private Sub Worksheet_change(ByVal Target As Range)

        Set acell = Sheets("Graph Data Entry").Columns(1).Find(What:=Range("E5").Value, LookIn:=xlValues, _
        LookAt:=xlWhole, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, _
        MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False)
    
        If Not acell Is Nothing Then
            Range("E9").Value = acell.Offset(2, 2).Value
            Range("E10").Value = acell.Offset(4, 2).Value
            Range("E11").Value = acell.Offset(6, 2).Value
            Range("F9").Value = acell.Offset(2, 3).Value
            Range("F10").Value = acell.Offset(4, 3).Value
            Range("F11").Value = acell.Offset(6, 3).Value
            Range("G9").Value = acell.Offset(2, 4).Value
            Range("G10").Value = acell.Offset(4, 4).Value
            Range("G11").Value = acell.Offset(6, 4).Value
            Range("H9").Value = acell.Offset(2, 5).Value
            Range("H10").Value = acell.Offset(4, 5).Value
            Range("H11").Value = acell.Offset(6, 5).Value

Nice...but when I change the data in the 'Graph Data Entry' sheet, the graph doesn't update anymore. Do I have to refresh it somehow? Sorry for the possible noob question...

The data is the same for every one in the "Graph Data Entry" and that is why it appears that it is not updating :)

singleton2787: In my file, if you will move the chart, you will see the data behind it, That is where the data gets updated. I think I might not have connected the chart to that data but I am sure that you can manage that.

That is becuase you posted the code that is meant for Sheet "Team Dashboard WIP" in Sheet "New Layouts" :) And there you have 2 worksheet chnage events.

What do you want to exactly do in the Sheet "New Layouts"?
