About the Session - Storytelling & Power BI

The session presented addresses the issue that designing a report that will be viewed and used by different audiences can be challenging. 

You want to present information in an actionable, informative, and visually appealing way. However, users across an organization may have various requirements and Power BI experience levels. While some users need detailed information presented in different dimensions with possibilities to filter and drill through, others may only look for key performance indicators. Some users like to click through a dashboard to see specific information, while others want to print it or have a quick look on the phone to see the most relevant information.
This session covers steps you can take to understand the needs of different audiences. 

Topics covered during the session Storytelling & Power BI​

– Techniques and questions you can ask to understand your audience and to gather the report requirements.

– Examples of different visualizations (and ways to format them) to communicate with different audiences and get your message across

– Providing a consistent look and feel (with templates and color schemes) to reduce the cognitive load when looking at a report

– Best practices & tips to design actionable, informative, and easy-to-understand reports.

By the end of the session, attendees will understand better how to create a Power BI report that connects with different audiences across an organization.
