Organizations increasingly rely on data to drive decision making; presenting data visually ensures a message is understood. This 90 minute session combines theory with data visualization best practices in order to tell a compelling story. Concepts are made concrete through the use of numerous real world examples and hands-on learning.
At the end of this interactive session, participants will be able to:
§Comprehend difference between poor and effective visuals and identify examples of each
§Know what type of visual to use given the information that is to be displayed
§Recognize clutter that does not add informative value and be comfortable cutting it from visuals
§Employ pre-attentive attributes to direct attention and provide a visual hierarchy of information
§Know the right questions to ask to ensure the visual meets the audience's needs
§Synthesize lessons learned to transform a poor visual into an effective visual story
