About the Topic

Data Visualization and Understanding Relationships between Variables are essential for business. The best managers are those who go beyond the superficial analysis and can identify patterns and underlying trends by doing rigorous data science. But that is not enough.

To leap forward from being a good business manager to a good organizational leader, you must simplify the analysis and make it clear and concise for all levels in the company.

In this session, you will be introduced to two tools - Regression Analysis and Spark Lines that will help you to achieve both: produce insight, and communicate it effectively.
