Data Storytelling

Data StoryTelling


Your data is only valuable if it helps people make important decisions and take action. Data stories that are well told are drivers of positive changes within the present-day organization. However, how can we identify the most vital insights into the data of our business and communicate the same in a convincing way? How can we link the data which we have to the major underlying business matter?

This course will take the participants from the basics (the things we are going to measure and the reasons for doing so) through to the components of good visualization design (features of a good chart) through to efficiency in data storytelling.
