My process for success

  1. Acquire rock-solid confidence in the data. Understand the complexities of the dataset and the business processes underlying it.
  2. Distill that information into visualizations that just make sense. When the visualization is right it will instantly “click” with the observer, and they will start pulling it out to gather insight.
  3. Review the visualization with the client, answer all questions about assumptions and conclusions, and guide them through the salient parts of the visualization.
  4. Help the client to drive action.
