Data visualization

Communicate your insights from data to your audience

Are you aware of the effects visualization choices have on your audience? Are you using the right graphs to communicate your insights? Learn about the effects your choices have on your audience. Choose the correct layout and make sure your message comes across clearly.

7 May 2020 | Amsterdam

Today’s enormous amount of data provides answers to almost every question. With the correct tools, it also becomes increasingly easy to conduct the right analyses. However, we often do not succeed in communicating our insights to others. As long as this remains the case, our analyses fail to meet their goals and available data remains useless.

 

What will you learn?

In this training, you will learn to visualize data in such a way that the insights come across in an efficient and effective manner. It starts with clarity around the message you want to convey to your target audience. For example, choose the type of graph that best suits your message.

You will gain an understanding of how humans consume visual stimuli and how we are influenced by them. Graph layout (colors, lines, etc.) and context (titles, labels, etc.) are of great importance and can clarify, but also cloud your message. During the training, you will look at many practical examples from the perspective of the target audience.

We recommend sending in your own examples of data visualizations or cases on forehand, as at the end of each chapter of the course, we take time to bring theory into practice with group assignments that are (partially) based on your own input. This way, you can immediately apply your learnings to your own question, situation or job.
