Overview

In the data-driven economy, mastering data visualization and storytelling is increasingly vital. Governments at all levels accumulate vast amounts of data daily, turning it into a crucial resource for informed decision-making. Yet, handling, managing, and extracting actionable insights from these complex datasets poses challenges. Leading a data team to responsibly and accurately inform organizational or political decisions adds another layer of difficulty.

Emerging as a tool to overcome this challenge is data visualisation. Naturally, the human brain is pre-programmed to respond faster to visual cues, and with the rise of big data in recent years, the importance of data visualisation, coupled with the art of data storytelling, has grown exponentially. Data-driven decisions in government, and therefore, improved operational efficiencies and citizen outcomes, hinge just as much on data leadership as it does on day-to-day data practitioners.

This course offers essential theories, tools, and techniques for establishing a successful data visualization and storytelling capability. Through a blend of lectures, group exercises, and expert feedback, participants learn how to leverage data visualization to uncover insights, create compelling narratives, and secure stakeholder buy-in for informed decision-making.
