This could be the least asked question since “How can I hire Lynton Crosby?” but the stats show this blog still gets a few views each day. So why the radio silence?
The short answer is that after a lot of lobbying I finally secured Tableau for my team at work, and my development time since has been spent putting together a training plan and creating dashboards for real-life work scenarios, none of which I can share.
Which got me thinking: how much of what people do in Tableau is hidden behind company firewalls?
I did get a peek behind the curtain at the Midlands Tableau User Group last Tuesday with a demo on how Parexel use Tableau (as a portal for multiple external users: an interesting contrast with how we use it as an inward-facing tool to answer business questions using data).
Like everyone in the field I get inspiration from other people’s work, and used Steve Wexler’s post I’ve Got the Jitters (and I Like it!) to create the main chart (albeit the data points are ordered by club name, rather than randomized). Another reason to keep Tableau Public!
