Leveraging Art and Science for Effective Data Storytelling: From Concept to Reality

Anyone can make a pretty bar graph, but can you make sound decisions based on that graph? Is it actionable, or is it only a concept? How do you turn flashy concepts into actionable visualizations? Can you see the end result of those concepts; will they ever become reality? Do you have the vision and drive to figure out how to get from today to tomorrow before it becomes yesterday?

American mathematician John Tukey once said, "The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see." What value do you see in your data? And what ideas do you have when you see it? Learn how you can capitalize on your ideas and turn them into reality by blending internal with external, leveraging them into a cohesive strategy for both the short term AND the long term. See the five "Stages of the Spectrum" in action while discovering the difference between impact and influence, and how that difference plays into making data actionable.
