Among many benefits, a good visualization affords the opportunity to both transform and display data and insights while accelerating key people trends to the business it serves. We have the ability to communicate for influence, tell a story, all the while rendering information for illumination and decision-making.  Starting with overarching organizational priorities, this hands-on workshop will:
·         Demonstrate the process of adopting different visualization techniques (such as a dashboard),
·         Help you advance your core metrics, and ultimately answer key workforce questions your organization craves
·         Lay out different ways to visualize data and create “infographic” style stories custom to your organization
