It’s clear that today's information and data landscape is more complex and rich with potential (and business value) than at any time before. And while the ability to capture, manage and apply analytics to this wealth of information is critical, it's clear a person can have the greatest insight in the world, but without the ability to effectively share that insight with decision makers, those insights may ultimately have little value.
Companies now recognise that the skills of data storytelling and narrative development are becoming as crucial as statistical analysis and data analytics. When combined with the ability to effectively leverage visual elements and design thinking, these additional skills improve the effectiveness and efficiency of anyone who needs to communicate or share information and insights with colleagues, peers, and associates.
