Presenting graphs and dashboards

The use of tables, graphs and dashboards to communicate quantitative information is a common practice and always required in the business world. It's a need for every managerial function (budgets, forecasts, economic plans, investments, cost structures, sales, tableau de bord). Through this course, you will learn how perception works from a neuroscientific point of view and which graphic tools to use according to the message you want to communicate or the situation you want to represent.
Duration: in-class (two days); online (four half-day modules).
