What you'll learn in this data visualization training:

Fascinated by data visualization but don't have any experience beyond charts in Excel or Powerpoint?

Data visualizations are a critical business tool. This class serves as an introduction to the visual techniques that are often employed when describing, analyzing, and communicating data in a business setting. We’ll start by explaining the role of data visualization in a business setting, and then dive into basic visual methodology.

  • Excel vs. Tableau - When to use what?
  • Chart selection methodology
  • Labeling, formatting, and coloring for clarity
  • Building charts that can grow over time
