Communicating effectively with data is a skill imperative to master for influence in today's business climate. It is through data stories that organizational change happens. To begin, it’s imperative to know the problem you are trying to solve. Knowing the question to be answered helps you interpret the results, and know what type of data you need to collect to solve the problem. Exploring this data allows you to compare expectations to reality, a vital step in any data analytics project. Formal modeling of the data highlights the insights, the stories, told by your data. These collective stories are the most influential way to ensure the insights are understood, socialized and acted upon.
