    • EasyMorph
    • Alteryx Designer
    • Survey tool web data connectors

  • Visualizing Yes / No / Maybe data (single punch)
  • Visualizing Check-all-that-apply data (multi punch)
  • Visualizing sentiment (divergent stacked bars and Top N Boxes)
  • Visualizing Likert-scale data
  • Net Promoter Score analysis and visualization
  • Benchmarking and jitter plots
  • Showing rank and magnitude
  • On-demand drill down
  • Dealing with weighted responses

What people are saying about the class

"A huge thank you to Steve for offering this class. I have struggled with trying to learn Tableau and this class was a godsend. Steve explains things in accessible terms and step-by-step instructions so that I feel like I can really use this software after all. "

"Given Steve’s in-depth practical experience and discussion of many highly relevant real world examples attendees will come away with a full understanding of all steps required to analyze survey analysis in the most effective and flexible way. This class is a must for anyone who is analyzing survey data."

"I’ve been to every Tableau conference since the first, and discovered Steve and his amazing talents early on. Since then, I’ve never missed a presentation. I always learn something useful and innovative about survey analysis. I finally decided to take one of his on-line classes this year, and was really glad I did. It was an opportunity to learn at the foot of a master. Beyond the class itself, Steve was willing to spend time with me personally to walk me through some problems I’d been wrestling with. He has a real desire to teach others what he knows, and is incredibly generous with his time and knowledge."

"Your class was an eye opener on how to better structure our data, leverage calculations/visualizations that are more applicable to our data (% selected, % top rating, etc.) and generally make sense of our data. "
