Draw is used to create "schemas", diagrams, flowcharts or graphical illustrations with geometric shapes. It is not a visualisation module.

Charts are created directly in Calc, just like they are created in Excel.

To some extent, charts with data source taken in a Calc spreadsheet can be created in Draw, but to the best of my knowledge they are similar to those of Calc. The benefit you get in Draw is the ease to add other "decorations" on the chart.

EDIT: I watched the video. You have no equivalent function for process management as examplified.

You don't "import" a Draw file into Calc or Writer. Instead, you select a group of objects (shapes, connectors, text boxes, …) in Draw, you copy the group and paste it into a Writer document or Calc spreadsheet. The pasted objects are enclosed in a frame which you can move freely.
