This is your raw data. Wherever your data is, however it is organized, we will start here. We've seen it all – no need to be ashamed of your Excel spreadsheets you may be trying to use as a database.
Your data will be loaded into a central location, from a potentially wide variety of sources. From here we get you to a place where edits can be seen and the changes are not lost.
Here is where we get our hands dirty cleaning data. This involves removing duplicate or irrelevant observations, fixing structural errors, filtering unwanted outliers, handling missing data, and validation and QA.
With a clear, defined purpose, we will create data visualizations; which could be simple reporting or more complex dynamic dashboards. After choosing a tool for visualization, data will be prepared and visualized in a way that is understandable.
We find the story within the data, and taking into consideration the audience and our previous work and visualizations, provide context around the data. Stories are edited to be as concise as possible. This makes the journey clear, and actionable.
