Webinar Description

The aggregation and reporting of data—PQI, financial, and other critical information—is essential to sustaining the health of organizations and advancing their culture of excellence. And within organizations, evaluation and research teams are skilled at collecting and analyzing this data.

However, presenting data effectively to executives and other internal stakeholders is not as straightforward as it might seem. If we are honest, most of our data presentations are non-engaging (boring), saturated with numbers and graphs (not aesthetically pleasing), and can be needlessly confusing (lacking simplicity). This webinar will offer tips and strategies to help you translate mounds of data and analysis into presentations that engage leaders and increase their understanding and appreciation of essential information.

Sponsored by the Alliance-COA Performance Excellence APEX , this session will help you apply creativity to presentations that will result in leaders understanding the value and opportunities in data aggregation and analysis. We will focus on fostering solutions that make data presentations more engaging and effective, while igniting leaders’ desire to dive deeper into more substantial reports. Three main
objectives will be discussed: Understanding the perspective of our leaders; learning what will make our data engaging; and learning how to improve visual data.
