What is Dashboard in a Day?
Dashboard in a Day is a daylong, instructor led, hands-on tutorial to accelerate understanding how to use Power BI to gather and transform data, to create visualizations, to gain insights culminating in creating and sharing Power BI dashboards. Upon completion of the hands-on tutorial, students then apply the lessons learned to their own data, with the end goal of leaving the class with a solid foundational knowledge of Power BI and a working dashboard of their data.
This course is perfect for business analysts and other business leaders who must glean insight from history, make assertions for change, and take a direct action with data-driven cases.
