The training begins with a rigorous diverse 4-month training programme for both Tableau and Alteryx. This leverages all the experience and knowledge of The Information Lab team, drawing from the 40,000 consulting days delivered since 2010
Dataschool consultants often come from strong maths and/or science backgrounds which help them become incredibly capable with these tools within a short period.
They come armed with both technical and soft skills to support your organisation to make the most of your data.
The Data School has been paramount to our success at JLL. It has allowed us to bring in highly skilled Tableau and Alteryx consultants It saves considerable time trying to recruit contractors as I know their skills and training are to the highest standard.
Over the past 5 years my team has developed analytical insights which have generated multi million dollar savings of which a considerable amount can be attributed to the Data School consultants we have had working on projects.
The Information Lab team do a great job of selecting raw talent, which they refine and also go on to see them grow as Tableau Ambassadors, Alteryx ACEs or Tableau Visionaries.
This year, one of our Data School members won the prestigious Iron Viz championship, which also helped us to gain a large internal traction and marketing, showing the skills and value that the team can add.
The other benefit of the data school we find is the six month placements. They really work well in supporting our approach to the size of the team which we can scale up and down as demand requires. At times, we have had three DS working together at capacity, whilst at other times this can drop down to one.
I couldn’t recommend the programme enough, in fact we have permanently recruited one of our data school alumni who has continued to grow and develop whilst with JLL.
