Turning Insights into Action

The primary purpose of analytics is to help organizations discover meaningful insights that will inform better decision making. Unfortunately, too many insights fail to translate into action. In the very last mile of the analytics process, insights are squandered when they aren’t communicated effectively.

Join us for a webinar Thursday, June 25, as we sit down with data analyst and author Brent Dykes to discuss his new book, “Effective Data Storytelling: How to Drive Change with Data, Narrative, and Visuals” (Wiley). Together we’ll cover:

  • - The art and science behind effective data storytelling
  • - How Data Storytelling can make your insights more engaging, persuasive, and memorable.
  • - Valuable frameworks and practical tips for communicating data effectively.
