Creating & Scaling a Tableau Training Program

Maureen Henry (The Ohio State University)

Have you ever been in one of these situations? 1) There's a complete Tableau newbie in your department who will be creating Tableau workbooks. 2) Your organization is trying to upskill all your current Tableau creators. 3) You've decided to implement a new process for publishing Tableau workbooks onto your site.

How do you help everyone learn Tableau, build some shared practices, and make sure it's not total chaos? Learn how The Ohio State University created a training program to address a large and growing user base. Maureen will share lessons learned, outcomes, and some takeaways around how to scale based on size of organization and goals.
