Data-Driven Storytelling: From Evidence to Impact


Companies today aren’t struggling to acquire data. Typically, it’s the exact opposite--organizations are sitting on troves of data, but don’t know how to utilize it effectively or marry it with other external data. This course will give you the skills you need to take the data within your organization and use it to drive direction and transformation. You’ll learn how to identify key data, ask the right questions that lead to understanding the data, and use data in compelling ways, from visualization to storytelling.

What you will learn

  • To effectively source, vet, and analyze valuable data
  • To identify patterns in data and use these patterns to make strategic decisions
  • To effectively communicate your findings to stakeholders
  • To create visual and narrative presentations that resonate with your audience
