1. Data summarization is usually not enough when performing analysis. Most of the time, adding context by telling a story about the data is necessary to describe the analysis to others, especially those who are not data-savvy. What are some general guidelines to follow to tell a good data story? What story elements or structure should be used to organize the presentation?
2. Consider your organization, or an organization you are most familiar with. Explain the general process of data aggregation for a typical metric (e.g., sales revenue, cost per unit, etc.) used in the organization. What specific charts are commonly used to visually depict the data? What might be some areas for improvement regarding how the data is visually presented?
