Tableau for Data-Driven Decision Makers

Skip to Scheduled Dates

Course Overview

As data acquisition, access, analysis, and reporting are interwoven with our businesses and lives, more and more data is collected about business and personal activities. This abundance of data and the computing power to analyze it has increased the use of data analysis and data visualization across a broad range of job roles. Decision makers of all types, including managers and executives, must interact with, interpret, and develop reports based on data and analysis provided to them. Tableau® software is designed for data analysis and the creation of visualizations. Data analysts prepare data, perform initial analysis, and create visualizations that are then passed on to business data-driven decision makers. These decision makers can use Tableau's tools to explore the data, perform further analysis to find new insights, make decisions, and create customized reports to share their findings.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for professionals in a variety of job roles who receive Tableau data visualizations from data analysts or from data visualization engineers. These data report recipients want to take advantage of the many Tableau features and capabilities that enable them to explore the data behind the initial analysis, perform additional analysis to ask next-level questions of the data, and to customize visualizations and dashboards to share new insights and create compelling reports.
