Course Overview

Well told data stories are change drivers within the modern organisation.
But how do we find the most important insights in our business data and communicate them in a compelling way? How do we connect the data that we have to the key underlying business issue?

Advanced Visualization and Dashboard Design is aimed at the professional who already possesses fundamental data visualization and data storytelling skills. A natural continuation point from Data Storytelling for Business, this course provides participants with the skills needed to produce stunning, understandable business dashboards and graphs. Taught using a variety of visualization tools, the course covers the keys to designing for interactivity and drill down effects. The course also covers less commonly used but valuable visualization methods, including methods for visualizing networks and flows. Dashboard design is covered in detail, with participants creating a dashboard ‘makeover’ during the class practical workshop.

Who is this course suitable for?

This course is suitable for any professional who wants to analyze and extract value from business data using sophisticated data visualization and interactive dashboards that convey insights with clarity.
