Course Overview

We all know that most business people find rows and columns of numbers hard to utilize for business decision-making and that charts and graphs have been helpful to assist in this process. Advances in both data and in the tools available for data are now allowing a whole new era of visualizing data to assist business leaders. The days when an Excel pie chart was cutting edge have passed and new tools exist to create images and dashboards that can lead to sustainable value for a business.
