Creating a data visualization culture requires many different factors including people, technology and processes. But a good starting point is to consider how data is currently being consumed within your organisation. Then apply some visualization to the data incrementally. Showing your audience the before and the after is an effective way to show them the potential power of data visualization:
Colin is more than a data analyst – his work helps to tell an impact story. Colin provided quantitative expertise to help us make sense of baseline and endline survey data. Colin understood the evaluation methodology and supported us as evaluators to tell the best story using the available data. Our quantitative data was triangulated with qualitative data and Colin was instrumental in this triangulation process. Colin was an excellent communicator throughout the project, offering different options for presenting the data.
Iterating through different designs can help come to the right chart solution to answer the right business question.
I’ve worked with Colin on a number of projects. His expertise in data visualisation has been invaluable. Organised, communicative and just easy to work with.
Colin has wide ranging industry experience as an analyst, researcher and most importantly for our project, as a Tableau developer. This was invaluable as he was thus able to quickly grasp our industry nuances and how his work fit into the larger picture.
