Whether you are swimming up-stream or carrying out marching orders, finding a way to develop your institution’s analytics maturity is increasingly important for higher education. We’ll show you examples of how two very different institutions developed successful Tableau analytics cultures. Calvin College, a top-ranked liberal arts institution of 4,000 students with an executive-driven analytics approach; and Thompson River University (TRU), a Canadian university with 24,000 students (12,000 of which study via distance) that took a “bottom-up” approach to developing analytics. You’ll learn how we’ve implemented Tableau and how we use it to navigate areas such as gaining buy-in, culture shifts, organizational models for analyst teams, working with IR and IT, data architecture, better decision making, and more.
