Data Visualisation Best Practices 2

It is one thing to know how to build a report or dashboard in Power BI, Tableau, Qlik, etc., but it’s another to know which chart types to use under different circumstances, how to make it look good and most importantly, how to make it easy for people to consume the information.

Most report authors and data analysts have not had any training in principles of data visualisation/presentation. Why choose a line chart over a bar chart? What is a bullet chart and when to use it? What colours should you use and where and why? These and other important questions are addressed during this technology independent two-day course, based upon the teachings of Stephen Few, Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic, Edward Tufte and others.
