Whether you are an IT Manager or a Technology Consultant, you have to use data to create reports and presentations. For example, you might need to evaluate your team’s performance at the end of the quarter. Or, you might need to present to another business unit how your IT or Technology department can help save costs. Whatever the case might be, communicating your results and insights clearly in the form of charts will have a lasting impact.

In this course, you’ll learn how to leverage data visualization best practices, how to select the right graph type, and how to tell compelling stories with data. To practice, you’ll be using tools such as Excel and Tableau. You’ll be working in groups, as well as on individual assignments. By the end of this course, you’ll become a stronger data communicator, a key skill needed to move up the ranks in today’s business environment.
