From Concept to Reality with Actionable Data
Thursday, October 22, 2020
Anyone can make a pretty bar graph, but can you make sound decisions based on that graph? Is it actionable, or is it only a concept? How do you turn flashy concepts into actionable visualizations? Can you see the end result of those concepts; will they ever become reality? Do you have the vision and drive to figure out how to get from today to tomorrow before it becomes yesterday? This session will show you the best practices needed to achieve that goal.
American mathematician John Tukey once said, “The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.” What value do you see in your data? And what ideas do you have when you see it? Learn how you can capitalize on your ideas and turn them into reality by blending internal with external, leveraging them into a cohesive strategy for both the short term AND the long term. See the five “Stages of the Spectrum” in action while discovering the difference between impact and influence, and how that difference plays into making data actionable.
- Understand and recognize the five stages of visualization spectrum.
- Learn how to leverage these steps into a cohesive visualization strategy.
- Discover the difference between impact/influence and how that knowledge plays into making data actionable.
- Understand how the four-step iterative implementation cycle works: Deploy –> Discover –> Discern –> Develop.
