Data visualisation, story-telling, and scenario development have been identified as the most prominent analytical practices of tomorrow. This unit seeks to equip students with necessary knowledge and data visualisation skills, acquired through a real-life project inspired by the leading industry practices. Students will also develop a 'holistic' view of data visualisation in practice and will acquire 'thinking tools' to deal with its organisational and societal challenges. This unit focuses on business/organisational decision makers and their use of data visualisation. As such this unit does not require any prior IT, computer science or data science experience.
