Visual Analytics Best Practice

2 day course, £595 per person

This course is very much a discussion, so be prepared to present and critically analyse your own and class mates work. You will also need to bring a few examples of work you have done in the past.

Learning and applying best practice visualisation principles will improve effective discussions amongst decision makers throughout your organisation. As a result more end-users of your dashboards will be able to make better decisions, more quickly.

This 2 Day training course is aimed at analysts with good working knowledge of BI tools (we use Tableau to present, but attendees can use their own software such as Power BI or Qlik Sense). It is a great preparation for taking advanced certifications, such as Tableau Certified Professional.

The course includes the following topics:

  • Review of previous work
  • What is visual analytics?
  • What does Pre-Attentive mean?
  • The analytical flow
  • Visual communication techniques
  • Encoding data visually
  • Working with colour
  • The rules of how to display certain types of data and when to break them
  • Alternate ways to visualize geographical, time series, categorical analyses
  • The power of text
