Margy Ross and Bob Becker
Margy and Bob founded DecisionWorks Consulting in 1994, along with Nancy Rinn. For over 30 years, they have helped organizations leverage the information that’s collected by their operational systems to make better business decisions.
Margy and Bob have co-authored the best-selling Kimball Toolkit books on dimensional modeling and DW/BI methodology with Ralph Kimball. They have taught their best practices to tens of thousands of students, including over a decade via Kimball University. And they’ve consulted with hundreds of clients. That’s why they are the industry leaders in DW/BI methodology, design and education, especially when it comes to dimensional modeling. Although many competitors are larger, none were more experienced or relentlessly practical.
In 2003, DecisionWorks Consulting began doing business as The Kimball Group with Ralph and Julie Kimball, Joy Mundy, and the late Warren Thornthwaite. What a wonderful group of people to work with! While the Kimball Group ceased operations at the end of 2015, the legacy lives on. Margy and Bob continue to offer the same vendor-independent DW/BI consulting and education services. You can still tap into their decades of experience!

We offer the Storytelling with Data course presented by Amazon best selling author Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic.
Storytelling with data teaches you the fundamentals of data visualisation and how to communicate effectively with data. You’ll discover the power of storytelling and the way to make data a pivotal point in your story. The lessons are grounded in theory, but made accessible through numerous real-world examples—ready for immediate application to your next graph or presentation.
Storytelling is not an inherent skill, especially when it comes to data visualisation, and the tools at our disposal don’t make it any easier. This workshop along with the book provided, demonstrates how to go beyond conventional tools to reach the root of your data, and how to use your data to create an engaging, informative, compelling story.
Together, the lessons will help you turn your data into high-impact visual stories that stick with your audience. Rid your world of ineffective graphs, one exploding 3D pie chart at a time. There is a story in your data—storytelling with data will give you the skills and power to tell it!
