by Stephen Few , 24. - 26. February 2015 in Copenhagen, Denmark
Stephen Few will be presenting his Data Visualization Workshop in Copenhagen from the 24th. to the 26th. of February 2015. This is your opportunity to learn from the world’s foremost thought leader in Data Visualization!
We are overwhelmed by information, not because there is too much, but because we don't know how to tame it. Information lies stagnant in rapidly expanding pools as our ability to collect and warehouse it increases, but our ability to make sense of and communicate it remains inert, largely without notice.
Computers speed the process of information handling, but they don't tell us what the information means or how to communicate its meaning to decision makers. These skills are not intuitive; they rely largely on analysis and presentation skills that must be learned.
Stephen Few of Perceptual Edge focuses on the tools and techniques of visual business intelligence to help you make better use of your valuable information assets.
Stephen’s insights and material on effective analysis and presentation are based upon the research completed for his three books.
Here’s an outline of what will be covered during this 3-day workshop:
Day 1 & 2, February 24th-25th: Show Me the Numbers. Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten. This new extended workshop will teach you how to effectively communicate quantitative business data using tables and graphs. You will learn how to select the appropriate medium of communication (table vs. graph, and which type) and how to visually design each component to express your message clearly and compellingly. Each attendee receives a copy of the book Show Me the Numbers: Designing Tables and Graphs to Enlighten (second edition).
Day 3, February 26th: Now You See It. Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis. Ninety percent of all business data analysis can be carried out using simple graphing techniques. Even though these skills are easy to learn and apply very few people involved in analyzing business data know them. This course provides practical skills for analysis that is useful to managers at all levels and to anyone interested in keeping an eye on the business. Each attendee receives a copy of the book Now You See It. Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis.
