Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Dan Appleman, and welcome to my course Communicating Data and Analysis Results. I'm an entrepreneur who has worked frequently in the space of data processing and analytics. Whether it's sales and marketing analytics, machine learning or Internet of Things, the amount of data being created and processed today continues to increase beyond comprehension. But data has little value on its own. The value comes from the analysis of that data, the ability to derive actionable results. For those results to be useful, they need to be shared, to be communicated effectively. Otherwise they become useless, or worse, misunderstood to the point that they may lead to bad decisions. This course will teach you how to communicate data and analysis results accurately and effectively. You'll learn the importance of preparation of finding and choosing the story and scope that you're presenting. You'll learn how to structure your delivery in a way that not only makes logical sense, but is engaging and compelling. And you'll discover the many ways you can follow up afterwards to maintain engagement and reinforce the initial communication. By the end of this course, you will be confident in your ability to share the results of your data analysis and understand how those results have been perceived. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the creation of true and accurate data visualizations, as covered in my course, Objectivity and Data Visualization, which is a recommended prerequisite for this course. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to share the results of your own data analysis with this course, Communicating Data and Analysis Results, here at Pluralsight.
