DVT Insights: Data Storytelling – The Essential Data Skill for Everyone
Data storytelling is a process for communicating insights using data and visuals with a compelling narrative.
By 2025 data stories will be the most widespread way of consuming analytics – Gartner.
Data storytelling is a methodology for using narratives and visuals to communicate key insights into data. The nature of work is changing – driven by uncertainty in the business landscape and an increase in digital and remote capabilities. Organisations are therefore focusing on data literacy skills in the workforce and analytical tools to support better communication and sharing of insights.
Stories and imagery have always existed as a means to make sense of the world, unite communities and communicate ideas. Stories can also make insights compelling, memorable and actionable. It is, therefore, no surprise that stories driven by analytics will play a key role in understanding and communicating insights in a complex data-driven world.
In this session, Lyle will explore the role of data storytelling as a key part of data literacy.
The talk will:
* Highlight the relevance of data storytelling in the digital age.
* Describe how data storytelling communicates business insights and value.
* Showcase data storytelling best practices.
