Using Data Visualizations to Present Leadership Decisions - ***NOW RECORDED***Speakers: Timmie MirzaPresentation Duration: 45 minutesCo-sponsors: KM, DataLeadership roles involve presenting information and negotiating with others, using data as a powerful source of evidence. Presentations should be clear and conclusive, but data itself isn't very user-friendly for listener comprehension, nor is it typically acceptable to share in its raw state. Visualizations make understanding information easier to grasp. This workshop will provide tips for leaders and managers about how to use data visualizations to inform and to persuade internally, to stakeholders, and clients. It will break down preferred visualization types for conveying certain types of data, and describe what components of a data visualization can be most necessary or powerful to an audience.
