Presentation Abstract:

In the ever-evolving landscape of data, the role of data visualization has become pivotal in transforming complex information into actionable insights. We are happy to announce that PMI-MC with Ms. Amanda Makulec, Executive Director of the Data Visualization Society (DVS) invites you to delve into the heart of this dynamic industry and explore the current state of data visualization.

This presentation will offer an overview of the trends, challenges, and innovations shaping the data visualization landscape. As the authoritative voice in the field, the Data Visualization Society will share insights gathered from industry experts, practitioners, and thought leaders. We will explore the latest advancements in visualization techniques, tools, and technologies, providing a roadmap for navigating the intricate web of data representation.

The C-Suite expects more than Gantt Charts from Project Managers in the 21st century to aid critical decision making in terms of dashboards, status trackers, etc. While technology continues to evolve, as project managers we can master foundational principles that underpin impactful charts, dashboards, and data stories that apply no matter what technology or industry you’re working in. Combining design fundamentals with the capabilities of modern technology, we can create more meaningful, engaging visualizations that foster a deeper understanding of complex datasets.

The presentation will also address the critical issue of ethical considerations in data visualization, emphasizing the responsibility that comes with wielding the power to shape narratives through visual representation. We will explore the Data Visualization Society’s initiatives and guidelines aimed at promoting ethical practices within the industry.
