DATA STORYTELLING – NARRATIVES FROM DATA
21 January 2021 – Online Livestream via Zoom
Participants are required to bring their laptops with MS Excel (ver 2010 or later)
This workshop aims to provide a broad but practical overview of the entire analytics value chain; with a specific focus on building & telling a compelling story to an audience. Many great analyses fail to realize their potential by falling short in the “last mile” of value; more specifically, how to tell a concise, coherent, and compelling story from the data to drive decisions and actions.
This workshop seeks to build these often-overlooked capabilities in the “last mile” of value in analytics; which include, how to glean pivotal messages from data, how to structure and tell a data story that makes an audience care. This workshop aims to address such capability gaps; especially for professionals and managers who have some experience with analysis; but are finding some challenges in making an impact in the “last mile” of value in analytics.
• Understand what data analytics is, and the key ingredients for sustainable analytics
• Understand the analytics value and the part that effective communications with data plays in delivering the “last mile” of value
• Understand the key principles behind developing and telling a concise, coherent, and compelling story from the data
• Gain practical data storyboarding skills through a structured approach in the application through a case exercise
• Translate the data storyboard in the case exercise into a presentation deck that tells a concise, coherent, and compelling story.
