About the Course

One of the skills that characterizes great business data analysts is the ability to communicate practical implications of quantitative analyses to any kind of audience member. Even the most sophisticated statistical analyses are not useful to a business if they do not lead to actionable advice, or if the answers to those business questions are not conveyed in a way that non-technical people can understand. In this course you will learn how to become a master at communicating business-relevant implications of data analyses. By the end, you will know how to structure your data analysis projects to ensure the fruits of your hard labor yield results for your stakeholders. You will also know how to streamline your analyses and highlight their implications efficiently using visualizations in Tableau, the most popular visualization program in the business world. Using other Tableau features, you will be able to make effective visualizations that harness the human brain’s innate perceptual and cognitive tendencies to convey conclusions directly and clearly. Finally, you will be practiced in designing and persuasively presenting business “data stories” that use these visualizations, capitalizing on business-tested methods and design principles....

The course could have spent more time on table calculations, which I felt wasn't very well explained. Other than this, the content is great.

Very extensive course but useful. Not recommended for someone who wants a breezy experience. Needs lots of investment of time and brains.

The videos and modeling are great. I wish there were more guided practice with Tableau visualizations, calculations, and parameters.

Loved the Tableau section and the instructor is a good communicator. It'd be great to have a whole course about this BI Software

The recommendations for how to do a business presentation were great but I think we didnt see enough of the Tableau functions.

Good tutorials although there were probably too many videos. The assignment stretched me; this is a good thing. Thank you.

Generally a good course, but there is a gap between lectures and quizzes, and the forum is not very helpful.
