Becoming a Visual Organization: The Power of Data Storytelling
Data yearns to be free, to tell its stories to all those who care about its revelations. Discovering and sharing those stories should be easy. But it’s not. Why? Most software intended to help people access and understand data is hard to use. For too long, data has been trapped behind scripts, wizards and code. That can change! When a company gives people end user analysis tools, they feel different. Respected. Capable. Powerful. People start to drive their organization forward in ways that could never have been anticipated. They express their full ingenuity and creativity. This workshop will empower you to transform swaths of raw data into visually compelling stories, driving your business forward.
