One of your greatest challenges as a data analyst can be communicating your findings to others in a way that’s simple, straightforward, and easy to understand. It’s also an essential — and the most visible — part of your job. Fail to do so effectively, and the stakeholders you work with throughout your organization may not fully grasp the business-critical insights you’ve discovered. Don’t give them any reason to question what you’re doing tucked away in your cubicle all day. You’ve got to share those findings in an easy-to-understand format.
