Workshop: The Basics of Creating Your Own Dashboard Using Tableau
Data. Metrics. Dashboards. We all hear the drumbeat. The demand to quantify the once bespoke art of in-house legal service delivery is continually increasing. GCs are asking for spend, outside counsel, and matter related metrics, and they are then turning to you and asking where things can be made more efficient. How do you respond? Sure, you know how to pull data from your e-billing systems. You can assemble an arsenal
of spreadsheets. But how do you effectively share that information, and more interestingly, how do you connect the dots within your data to drive efficiency? This is where data visualization comes in.
This session will introduce attendees to the data visualization tool Tableau. This will be an interactive “hands on” session where attendees will individually create visualizations for a few common legal department metrics utilizing Tableau’s web interface. The objective of this session is to introduce attendees to Tableau and provide attendees with firsthand knowledge as to the time, effort and technical competency needed to create
your own visualizations and dashboards. Even if you are not going to be creating visualizations yourself, this knowledge can be leveraged when making decisions to outsource data visualization to third parties or develop resources in-house.
During the session, you will create visualizations for three common legal department metrics: (1) year over year legal spend, (2) savings as a percentage of total legal spend, and (3) year over year changes in law firm rates.
Speakers: Kyle Martin, Karen Murakami, Katherine Treadwell, and Cecilia Yoshida
