 A Blueprint Primer

Tableau Blueprint is a framework that will help clients to build capabilities for success with Tableau. It provides a starting point and roadmap for those organizations just starting out and creates visibility to those areas organizations may struggle with as they attempt to implement, rollout and derive the most out of their Tableau investment. 

Core Areas Of The Blueprint Framework:

  • Strategy - Building a vision for success
  • Advocacy - Identifying and educating champions
  • Agility -  Creating secure, stable and evolving as organization grows
  • Proficiency - Developing users who can do more with data
  • Community - Building a network of evangelists within the organization
  • Trusted & Governed - Create trust and confidence in the data through governance

How do you get started?

Analytics Strategy

Start with Strategy

Developing a data & analytics strategy is critical for deriving the most value out of your Tableau investment.  If you don't already have a strategy developed, we recommend starting with a Strategic Data Assessment (SDA).   The SDA provides a comprehensive evaluation of your current state across 5 key areas.

Through a series of focused interviews, we discover, analyze and recommend a data and analytics strategy that is right for you, including software technology platforms that enable self-service and automation.

Advocacy & Project Team

Creating & Mentoring Advocacy

Support of major initiatives and having the right people on the team are critical for the success of initiatives like a departmental or enterprise rollout of Tableau.  The landscape is littered with organizations that invested heavily in a game changing software platform, only to have it fail because the initiative wasn't properly supported throughout the organization.

We have helped hundreds of companies develop the right foundation for success through our Executive Advocacy & Mentoring Services package.  Assisting in the design of a Center of Excellence, helping to create Data & Analytics Steering Committees and providing guidance on the right mix of team members are just some of the ways we can assist you to ensure your Tableau implementation has the right support throughout the organization.
