In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competency:
- Analyze quantitative and qualitative data to solve problems and make decisions that impact organizations and their stakeholders
You have been asked to present your data findings and decision-making modeling to the leadership panel for feedback prior to the stakeholder meeting presentation. The panel wants to preview the charts and graphs that will be included in your presentation based on the research you have conducted. They would like to see how you will use the data to inform your recommendation, and how you will tell the story of that data.
