Industries are starting to leverage feature-rich tools that analyze massive, varied data sets to complete tasks more productively and effectively. Leaders spend a large amount of time interacting with data and studying the dashboards and visualizations created by their teams. Hence, their perspective of using a Visualization tool is quite different from their teams who need to create the visualizations. This course is focused on Leaders and teaches them techniques to interact with data for What If analysis to help with decision making.

This workshop is intended for Leaders who want to build skills related to visualizations and interacting with data using Tableau Reader.

After completing this course, the student will be able to:
■ Connect to a data source
■ Visualize KPIs that change over time
