Information Visualization: Make Better Decisions & Build Stronger Strategies
March 29, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Today, organizations and businesses have access to exploding amounts of data, both quantitative and qualitative. The challenge is knowing how to harness and make sense of all that data so it can be used to inform effective future strategy and valuable innovation.
Visualizing data, or information, allows us to pull key insights out of large amounts of data, draw connections between seemingly disconnected parts, communicate various perspectives, and create a shared sense of understanding. As a focus area, our presenters will discuss how information visualization can help you make sense of both Big Data and Thick Data – to inform decision making and strategic thinking.
Attendees will learn:
– The different types of visualizations
– How to identify which visualizations are best suited for different contexts
– How different visualizations can help make sense of data and communicate insights
– How visualization can be applied to decision-making and strategic planning.
Who should attend:
– Those who work with large amounts of data
– Business owners, other strategic leaders, marketing managers, and designers
– Anyone looking to make more informed decisions to drive meaningful innovation
– Those interested in how visualizations help us make sense of complex data
