Audience: This course is designed for the intermediate Tableau user.

About the Course: Okay, so YOU get data visualization and how it can transform an organization, but maybe your colleagues (and boss) still cling to their beloved spreadsheets. Or, maybe, they’ve tried data visualization but produced useless 3D pie charts or packed bubbles charts.

How can you change their mindset? How can you turn your organization into one that is data-visualization literate and that will appreciate all that you, the data visualization practitioner, can bring to the table?

In this session, Steve Wexler will share potent tactics to get people to “get” data visualization.

Duration: One hour of live virtual training, consisting of lecture, demonstrations, and a question & answer session.

Prerequisites: Completion of both Desktop I: Fundamentals and Desktop II: Intermediate courses, or equivalent experience with the Tableau Desktop product.

Course Includes: This course includes a digital student resources folder containing the presentation to use as reference material after the session.

At the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Move people away from cross tabs.
  • Make your dashboards irresistible, and at the same time reinforce good behavior and good results and change bad behavior and poor results.
  • Win a data visualization argument (without coming off as a complete jerk).
