Workshop 2:
Learning the art and science of creating actionable data stories

Facilitator: Mico Yuk, CEO and Co-Founder, BI Brainz

As the volume, velocity and variety of data continue to grow, creating ‘actionable’ goals, KPIs and metrics to influence your users’ actions remains a challenge. One of the proven and most effective ways to engage your users is by using the power of visual storytelling. Our BI Delivery Framework (formerly BI Dashboard Formula) methodology four-part visual storyboard will have you crafting compelling data stories with your users in no time.

Whether you are a BI beginner or veteran, this hands-on, non-technical workshop will teach you how to take any goal, KPI or metric and transform it into a compelling visual data story! By working in teams with your peers, you will apply each game-changing technique from our BI Delivery Framework to a real-world use case. This interactive workshop is 20% lecture and 80% hands-on.

By attending this workshop you will learn:

  • How to gather the ‘right’ requirements by focusing on their story, not the data
  • How to use our BI Delivery Framework (BIDF) visual storyboard to engage your users like never before
  • What questions to ask and what questions NOT to ask your users to avoid scope creep
  • What you need to do to take your BI and analytics journey to the next level

Who should attend:

  • BI & Analytics leaders
  • BI/Business Analysts
  • Anyone who is responsible for working with users to gather their requirements
  • Business owners who provide requirements

What to bring/expect:

The workshop is 20% lecture and 80% hands-on. You’ll be working in teams (not on laptops). Wear comfortable shoes as you will be on your feet most of the day and come well rested with an open mind. We are going to be doing a lot of right-brain, creative work!d
