About the Course: Many organizations don’t realize how much faster and more accurate their decision making would be if they were better at data visualization. Indeed, most organizations struggle with seeing and understanding their data. (Think about some of those 100-page slide decks and 60-column spreadsheets.)
In this live session, Steve Wexler will share insights on how to get your organization to "get" data visualization and answer such questions as:
- Why do we see so many bar charts?
- Why do most people make a mess of using color?
- What is the secret to engaging your stakeholders?
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:
- Understand the benefits of well-designed charts and dashboards
- Evangelize the use of data visualization in your organization
