On this episode of Analytics on Fire, we’re excited to be talking to one of our top students from our BI Dashboard Formula training program. Matthew (Matty) Grygorcewicz is a Senior Business Intelligence (BI) professional with 15+ years’ IT experience. He has worked for a number of large global companies. He is currently a Senior Business (BI) Analyst at South Australia Power Networks and a speaker.

While Matty’s success is no secret to the BI community in Australia and Singapore, we thought it would be great to start the year by inviting Matty to talk about how he applied our BI Dashboard Formula (BIDF) methodology to his analytics project and became a BI rock star and speaker in the process. He shares the gruesome details of how he went from struggling to implementing one dashboard, to deploying 4 dashboards in 5 months!  You’ll hear about some of the biggest challenges he had to overcome in his BI Journey and analyze the lessons he’s learned along the way. You’ll get to hear how his success has allowed him to travel around the world to tell his inspiring story.

In this episode, you'll learn:

  • What pushed Matty to go from IT guy to Business Intelligence Analyst.
  • Matty’s critical role at South Australia Power Networks.
  • Matty’s first encounter with the BI Dashboard Formula (BIDF) program and why it took him two years to get started.
  • The top things he started doing differently after going through the BIDF program and how it changed his project.
  • How Matty, as an IT guy, got around the ‘design’ hurdle.
  • His key to reducing the overall project time.
  • The importance of embracing the idea of ‘proximity’.
  • How Matty and his team find and identify their “Champions”.
