Five great webinars to improve your dashboard skills

Five great webinars to improve your dashboard skills

Building dashboards that inform and inspire

Tableau has launched a five-part webinar series to help people improve their dashboard skills and create vizzes that persuade, inform and inspire.

Well-planned dashboards allow business leaders and knowledge workers alike to ask and answer questions in real-time, turn insight into action, and inspire true innovation.

I have registered to all of them and even though the first one took place a few days ago (you can watch it on demand!), there are still another four to come and one better than the other.

Here they are … Register, learn and enjoy !

Dead-end dashboards and how to avoid them

Learn how to evolve your business intelligence investments beyond dead-end dashboards and towards data-driven decisions.

Read more

Dashboards are a vital part of any business intelligence (BI) strategy. But there’s an unspoken truth: dashboards are always incomplete and out of date. You have new business decisions to make every single day. Do your dashboards change that fast? No. Fortunately, a good BI strategy can also encourage iteration, curiosity, and flexibility. Learn how to adopt those cultural changes in order to evolve your BI investments beyond dead-end dashboards and towards data-driven decisions.

What is a dashboard, anyway?

What is a dashboard? And does it matter? Should a dashboard fit one screen? Should it provide instant insight? Should it be interactive.

In this webinar, Andy Cotgreave will challenge the traditional definition of a dashboard. He will share his own definition and explain how the purpose of sharing data isn’t to fit a particular definition, but to fulfill a goal. Andy will show many examples of different dashboards, explaining why they work and how they push the definition of the term “dashboard”. Attend this webinar if you want to more effectively engage the users of your dashboards.
