Whether you are a BI beginner or veteran, this 100% hands-on, non technical workshop will teach you how to take KPI/metrics and transform them into a compelling data story! By working in teams with your peers, you will apply the techniques you learned during the short lectures immediately to a real world use case. The workshop is 20% lecture and 80% hands-on By attending this intense but fun-filled workshop, you will learn: • How to change the 'conversation' with your users by focusing on the story, not data • Your personal BI Maturity IQ score and what areas need your attention • How to use the BIDF visual storyboard to engage your users like never before • What questions to ask, and what questions NOT to ask your users to create a compelling data story • What to do to take your data visualization journey to the next level!
