Suitable for leaders within BI/Data Analyst departments in organisations, as well as analysts.
Within large organisations, typically analysts lack the opportunities to be more involved in their projects, losing out on the opportunity to grow within an organisation by providing more visually engaging and insightful data visualisations. We look at how we aim to tackle that at Groupon, by proactively involving analysts at all stages of dashboard production and introducing peer-review systems that allow for more engaging dashboards.
We will introduce the concept of Groupon's Educational project and its setup across global offices.
We will talk about data literacy and the profile of the typical analyst, highlighting the need for more grounded liberal arts background and experience outside of the tech graduate background
We will set out the problem whereby analysts are faced with requests and may not have the knowledge or support to be able to discuss alternatives to these requests, or may fear the change process of an unfamiliar working practice or request.
We will introduce our way of working based on peer review within project teams, which allows more input from analysts and more skilful/visual output in comparison with traditional tabular output forms.
Learn how to take a data-driven approach to designing a dashboard, and learn how to empower analysts to make bolder decisions in creating their output for internal clients. Artisans are able to use feedback, planning, experience and design skills to present a more powerful story to their end clients, while potentilally saving on the requirement for re-creation of dashboards and additional extra requests.
