Secret 2: Organize Your Data  

Imagine tidying up a messy room before a big event. Organizing your data involves categorizing, cleaning, and prepping it for analysis. This process ensures your data is Accurate, Consistent, and Ready for action. We call this the ARC Framework.

Organizing your Data with the ARC Framework

Secret 3: Design Your Data Model 

Now, let's talk design. Creating a structured data framework is like building the blueprint for your data world. It's all about identifying key data elements, and their relationships, and ensuring flexibility to adapt to changing business needs. 

Taking Action: Execution and Evaluation 

  • Execution Phase: It's about applying your data model to real-world data, using tools like Excel or Power BI to analyze and present your findings. 
  • Evaluation Phase: After the action comes reflection. Evaluation involves measuring performance against goals, collecting feedback, and making adjustments to improve your analytics game. 


Secret 4: Execute with Precision 

Execution is all about diligence and practical application. Use accessible tools like Excel and Power BI to transform data into actionable insights. 


Secret 5: The Power of Storytelling
