The goals of this combined part-individual and part-team project are:
1. Individually - to develop your skills and competencies with using the
“Tableau Desktop 2019” application to manipulate, visualize and develop datadriven stories from large datasets and to create a data-driven story based on the
insights extracted from the datasets; and
2. With your “Tableau Team” (mostly three person teams, some two person teams:
you can find your Tableau Team assignment in the “Tableau Assignment
Resources” folder under “Resources” in Sakai/Courses):
a. apply these skills to analyze at least 2-3 (one per team member) of the “Open Data” datasets provided by the City of Los Angeles through its “DataLA” initiative to support dat-driven planning and decision making;
b. design and develop a Tableau story that contains 4 slides per team
member (8 slides total for 2-person teams; 12 slides total for 3-person
teams) about the most interesting insights that you have gleaned from the
datasets that are relevant to your clients business decision-making needs
