Now You See It: Visual Data Analysis SOLD OUT!

Oct 03 to

Most business data analysis requires skills and practices involving the use of graphs that can be easily learned, but resources that teach them are almost impossible to find. Almost all books and courses on data analysis teach sophisticated statistical and financial analysis techniques, but only about 10% of business data analysis requires them. This full-day course is for those responsible for the remaining 90%.

All attendees will receive a copy of the book Now You See It: Simple Visualization Techniques for Quantitative Analysis.
