Getting Started With Tableau Training
Most people signing up for this course fall into one of two camps.
- They are currently spending many hours every month in Excel, or Google Sheets, trying to produce meaningful executive reports.
- They have just started with Tableau, have blazed through those first few hours and hit the wall. The wall is in pretty much the same place for everyone. They do some dragging and dropping, create a bar chart and a line chart and then are not sure where to go next.
Tableau can save the people in the first camp huge amounts of time and energy, quickly connecting to their old spreadsheets and automating the monthly grind. That way they don’t just save time in that first month, they don’t have to do those dashboards again, ever.
The people in the second group come away from the course inspired. They start by replacing all those dead-end KPI dashboards with highly interactive ones that answer far more questions instantly. Then they move on to discover new insights within their data that can change the way you do business.
