"Thinking like an analyst" course is a very complete compact course if you have to go through the process of getting to know your customers business till building an insightful dashboard for them. I did a lot of courses the past year but this one is totally different. Key is satisfying your customer by giving them strong insights. I really enjoyed the course and put it on pause many times to check or use it directly in my own ongoing project. I can recommend this course to anybody working as a consultant in the data area.

Maven's Pivot Table & Charts class was a great intro to dashboard design but Advanced Excel Dashboard Design will take your approach to a whole new level. You'll learn the importance of formula-based dashboard design and how to manipulate colors, charts, and KPI metric cards to tell your story. By far one of my favorite Maven classes!

Thinking like an Analyst course has helped me to clearly understand what it takes to have a successful career in data analytics. I have learnt that my focus should be on the skills I acquire while learning and not the tools. I have also learnt a data analysis workflow for high quality analysis that drives actionable outcomes. I had fun while learning during this course. It is self pacing and elaborate.

An excellent course with top-notch data sets to work around with. As usual, Chris Dutton did a fabulous job of covering each element with a simplistic but analytical approach. Although I've been using pivot tables for 5+ years, the new learnings will open a whole array of opportunities for extracting actionable insights. Thank you!

Maven really makes it possible to get into data analytics without taking (and paying for) a traditional education program. The courses I took left me with a better understanding and deeper knowledge of what I like most: analyzing data.
