Evangelizing Tableau… Starting With An Idea You recognize a business imperative | challenge | dilemma. You “see a Tableau Solution” (visionary or incremental) whose operational outputs could get the organization to a better place, if they were acted on. Your Solution may provide visibility to data never seen before, show previously seen data in a new light, or enable the integration of data from diverse sources. You find a way to prototype and validate the critical Reporting / Analysis “Solution Scenarios” – driven by the Tableau UI. You believe that if the organization “gets it”, a phase one implementation is possible – via “building”, “buying” – or a combination of the two. All rights reserved. © 2009 Tableau Software Inc.

Evangelizing Tableau… The Idea Goes Public Other candidate Projects are jockeying for support. Your Project needs a home within your organization and a line item in a budget. Your priorities are to find both. You identify one or more potential Project Champions to lobby. You expect savvy prospective Champions to stress test the business logic of your Solution, and its viability for implementation. You make it your duty to inform prospective Champion(s) of risk in your Solution and promise to mitigate those risks. You “keep things simple” as much as possible. Champions are rarely technical nor are they altruists. The moment a Champion secures support your Solution, it is no longer yours. Your Solution morphs into a Project identified with the Champion.
