Plotted performance guaranteed not to predict future performance
McKinsey thinks the data world needs more dataviz talent

Webinar Wednesday


I'm delivering a quick-fire Webinar this Wednesday on how to make impactful data graphics for communication and persuasion. Registration is free, at this link.


In the meantime, I'm preparing a guest lecture for the Data Visualization class at Yeshiva University Sims School of Management. The goal of the lecture is to emphasize the importance of incorporating analytics into the data visualization process.

Here is the lesson plan:

  1. Introduce the Trifecta checkup (link) which is the general framework for effective data visualizations
  2. Provide examples of Type D data visualizations, i.e. graphics that have good production values but fail due to issues with the data or the analysis
  3. Hands-on demo of an end-to-end data visualization process
  4. Lessons from the demo including the iterative nature of analytics and visualization; and sketching
  5. Overview of basic statistics concepts useful to visual designers

Is the seminar available on recording?


C: I doubt they will make the recording available because the Webex software was acting up that day - there was no way to suppress the entry-and-exit beeps* and we had many hundreds of people attending so quite a lot of background noise. However, the organizer is planning to have me do a longer version of this next year; will announce this when it's set up.

PS. Thank you to all the audience that day for putting up with the beeps and staying for the whole session!

* Just learned that bleep and beep mean the same/similar things. Does anyone know the distinction?
