Course Description

One of the skills that characterizes great business data analysts is the ability to communicate practical implications of quantitative analyses to any kind of audience member. Even the most sophisticated statistical analyses are not useful to a business if they do not lead to actionable advice, or if the answers to those business questions are not conveyed in a way that non-technical people can understand. In this course you will learn how to become a master at communicating business-relevant implications of data analyses. By the end, you will know how to structure your data analysis projects to ensure the fruits of your hard labor yield results for your stakeholders. You will also know how to streamline your analyses and highlight their implications efficiently using visualizations in Tableau, the most popular visualization program in the business world. Using other Tableau features, you will be able to make effective visuali...

Using other Tableau features, you will be able to make effective visualizations that harness the human brain’s innate perceptual and cognitive tendencies to convey conclusions directly and clearly. Finally, you will be practiced in designing and persuasively presenting business “data stories” that use these visualizations, capitalizing on business-tested methods and design principles.

Data Visualization and Communication with Tableau is the third course in Duke University's "Excel to MySQL: Analytic Techniques for Business" specialization offered on Coursera. The 5-week course starts is essentially an introduction to Tableau (weeks 2 and 3) book-ended by some lectures on considerations and best practices for communicating data insights in a business setting (weeks 1 and 4.). The final week is devoted to a peer-reviewed assignment and has no new lecture content. The course provides you with a free temporary license for the desktop version of Tableau. You can get through his course without any background knowledge, although some knowledge of MS Excel will help you appreciate some of the comparisons it makes. Grading is based on 4 weekly quizzes and a peer graded assignment.

You can get through his course without any background knowledge, although some knowledge of MS Excel will help you appreciate some of the comparisons it makes. Grading is based on 4 weekly quizzes and a peer graded assignment. Data Visualization has quality lectures that do a good job introducing Tableau in the context of creating visualizations for a business context. The Tableau walkthroughs are easy to follow and give you an appreciation for how much easier it is to make nice visualizations in Tableau than it is in Excel. You same data sets for the entire course, one data set for walkthoughs and one for homework assignments, which provides a nice sense of consistency. Weeks 1 and week 4 raise some useful considerations to keep in mind when preparing for and presenting a data analysis, but the Tableau sections in weeks 2 and 3 are the heart of the course. I would have preferred more content covering ins and outs of Tableau instead of the 2 weeks spent on communication topics, but the mix is probably about right for business-oriented students. I give Data Visualization and Communication with Tableau 4 out of 5 stars: very good.
