Visualizing data through charts, graphs, and diagrams helps you deliver bite-sized information that viewers will understand at a glance and retain for the long run. We’ll focus on designing with stakeholders’ information needs front and center, using readily available software like Microsoft Excel, and thinking through dozens of chart types—dot plots, small multiples, and more—that can be applied to your organization’s data. My goal is to equip you with critical thinking skills and technical know-how to create visualizations faster and easier than you ever thought was possible.
