Data Visualization for Effective Communication

After compiling and analyzing massive amounts of data, few analysts have the ability to package their results into compelling stories or into an overall business solution. What sets apart an “ordinary” analyst from a “great” analyst is the ability to organize and present valuable organizational information in a way that is visually pleasing, tells a story, and is structured into actionable recommendations. Data visualization is the art of telling a story about data in a graphic medium. This course teaches the practical skills necessary to communicate information about data clearly and effectively. Learn techniques for processing and transforming data into insights using industry-leading data visualization platforms. Acquire an understanding of the creative process, the discipline of sketching and revising, and practical use of various software tools that enable decision-making through effective data storytelling.
