Founder, Author, Global Keynote Speaker, Creator of Analytics on Fire Podcast

Hi, I’m Mico, founder of the BI Brainz Academy. 

Congratulations! 

You are one step closer to making your BI/analytics project a success! 

I was once in your shoes. 

As a BI consultant, I saw many large BI projects fail, including my own. The ‘reported’ cause was always technology or me the consultant of course. 

For almost a year I suffered through endless user workshops where the users were either not ready or aligned. 

Expectations were never set or met. Requirements changed by the hour and by the time the project was delivered, often late, the business had already moved on. 

In 2008 I decided something had to change.

Then one night, while expressing my frustrations to one of my mentors from MIT, he suggested I read a few books about human psychology and behavior. 

Halfway into the first book, a lightbulb 💡 went off!

THAT'S WHEN I realized that most BI projects were
failing for two main reasons...

❌ 1. NO CLEAR DELIVERY PROCESS

Eight years, and 500+ enterprise BI projects later, the one, single mistake I saw, was the absence of a process, any process.

From the requirement gathering, to the design and then development phase, most folks were doing it ‘on the fly’ claiming that it was agile or SCRUM.

Worst, the users had no idea what to expect! 

The Result? A loss of confidence in the delivery team and a search to find an alternative tool and team.  An exhausting and vicious cycle.

⚠️ 2. ASKING THE WRONG QUESTIONS

Another thing I realized is that because I did not know how to control the conversation, the requirements would never end.

I was asking what I thought was all the right questions: ‘What do you want to see?’, ‘What do you want to measure?’, ‘What are you trying to achieve?’

The result? I struggled to gather ALL the requirements and often delivered a data visualization that looked like an report with zero insight, that quickly became an export to excel tool!

let me help you avoid these mistakes!

I created a step-by-step process to teach you the same proven techniques we've used to build 500+ story driven dashboards for companies like Shell, Nestle and Coca Cola

Here’s what you get..

in the Master BI Data Storytelling online course

Proven framework used by over 100 of the largest brands across the world to deliver actionable dashboards

let’s see how you can too.

This course is for you if… 

You have NO process

No problem. Our proven methodology used by over 100 of the largest brands across the world to deliver actionable dashboards comes well equipped.

You don't know what to ask

You’ll get a list of key questions to ask your users to make sure they ‘stick’ to the story. We’ll also teach you what ‘NOT’ to ask to avoid extensive tool and color discussions.

You're not a designer

Don’t worry! You don’t have to be. Our wireframe to dashboard templates were designed specifically for non-designers. No more fiddling with colors, follow the process and you’ll get the same amazing looking dashboards each time.

You're tired of building
useless reports

The next time a user asks for a another report we’ll teach you exactly what to do to determine if there is a story, and what to do if there is no story.

Your users are obsessed
with 'tool talk'

Believe it or not, users only focus on tools because that is how they were trained to think by I.T. You’ll be surprised what happens when you change the discussion and focus on the true problems. We’ll show you how.

You've lost credibility
with the business

We can’t change the past, but we can change your future, future engagements that is. You wont go into another scoping meeting without a plan, process or something to show. Our unique storytelling toolkit has everything you need!

Through our online courses and in-person workshops we have trained 2,000+ people who are actively using our methodology and getting results. See what some of them have to say.

“The Visual Storytelling workshop opened my eyes to the fact that as an Information Management Professional I was approaching the business the worst way possible.

This was an on time investment and it was well worth the spend. “

Kadeon Grant – Digicel, Jamaica

This has been one of the best classes ever. If you have the privilege of partaking in one of Mico Yuk’s sessions do it. I learned a ton.

I’ve sat through countless presentations and given quite a few as well and I took more away from yours today in both presentation style, room control and good impactful, actionable content then any I have before. I really appreciate it and am thankful to have been a part of that class. Thanks so much. I think you are awesome.

Ryan Deeds – The Crichton Group, USA

Thanx Mico for the enlightening workshop. Gave a very handy perspective on dashboard building and designing, especially in the world full of pretty but useless ones. Can’t wait to implement on some real life dashboards and bring the change to the users and power to the people. Huge 👍🏻👍🏻

While this is an online class and we can ‘virtually’ hold an infinite amount of students, but we want to ensure that your overall experience with the course is amazing. 

However, if you are looking to register during an open enrollment period we typically limit it to 50 attendees to ensure quality and high quality bonuses.

BIDS was created not from theory, but from real-world experience and testing. While many of the other popular frameworks tackle how to present your message and visuals in power point, this is the only framework that tackles the three parts of true data storytelling: what you Say (using our data storyteller script), what you Write (using our visual storyboard) and then what you draw (using our story driven wireframes). 

Many of our students have noted that the above was missing from other popular courses they have taken. In addition, instead of giving you guidelines such as ‘remove clutter’ we give you clear techniques and templates on how to engage your users on an emotional and visual level. 

There is no need to convince you anymore, just take a look at what some of our students had to say in a recent survey:

Actual Student Feedback #1: “This is so great because it provides best practice – not just for our customers but also to convince our company employees how important this is. It gives us a compass to guide us through. I like it also because it goes beyond just basic steps, it brings in important values such as making sure people are valued and thanking people. This is really a recipe for success! Thank you!”

Actual Student Feedback #2: “As a cognitive scientist, my opinion is that this is a great course on UI design. Also, the social aspects on tips for interfacing with business and end-users were essential. I would recommend BIDF to anyone interested in improving their BI skills.”

Actual Student Feedback #3: “The course provides a great overview of how to approach a dashboard project. Lots of “inside” tips on what to do and what to avoid. Great opportunity to interact with other people who share the same passion and with industry experts as well. As an experienced dashboard developer, I definitely picked up a long list of things that I can use on my next dashboard project.”

It’s a ‘No Brainer’. See on the inside!

This is NOT a technical course. We focused 100% on the BI Data Storytelling framework. 

While the BI Data Storytelling training is platform agnostic and your wireframe can go on to be built in any business intelligence/analytics tool), we will be using PowerBI and other tools for our examples and other BI tools for real-world demos.
