At Evolytics, we realize the value of an analyst armed with Tableau know-how. We created our Tableau training program to help other organizations quickly get up-to-speed, not only on how to use Tableau, but how to effectively use it in the business world.

We have conducted training for a wide variety of audiences including Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and students.

Evolytics and the University of Missouri Crosby MBA program cultivated a partnership to teach Tableau to up-and-coming business leaders. The MBA program realized equipping students with Tableau skills provides a competitive advantage when searching for jobs and allows students to contribute from day one.

Our goal is to train the next generation of business leaders, and Evolytics was our strategic partner of choice for Tableau Training because they offer more than an award-winning data visualization practice. They teach the technical nuts and bolts while tying everything back to the big picture business analysis.

Students choose to partake in the training because they realize how valuable the skillset is in today’s market.

The ability to quickly make decisions using data is a vital part of most professions and Tableau is a tool that allows analysts to do so.

“Data is driving business today, but to be successful, analyst need to do more than report – they need to communicate,” Maria Magner, Crosby MBA student studying marketing, said. “As a visual platform, Tableau makes the connection between data and business intelligence, to reveal a deeper meaning. I am confident that learning Tableau as an MBA student will make me more competitive and influential in my profession.”

The eight-hour training requires no background in Tableau and builds a foundation from scratch. By the end of the class, participants are building dashboards and are able to answer complex business questions.

“It’s really exciting to see how empowered individuals become at the end of training,” Lindsey Poulter, a Data Visualization Specialist at Evolytics who often facilitates the training, said. “People who are first exposed to Tableau during training realize how powerful it is and often comment on how much easier a previous task would have been in Tableau or how they can apply what they learned right away.”
