    For this blog post, I will discuss my methodology for creating a narrative by focusing on the three storyboards I built to help manage my fantasy football team. I followed a 5-step process for storyboard creation: problem identification, storylining, connecting to data sources, adding views/interactions, and enhancement. I will dive into detail on each one of these steps.

    Using performance analysis to determine how I dropped the ball

    I built a storyboard in BI Office to help me draft a winning fantasy football team. Unfortunately, my team hasn't done a whole lot of “winning" so far this season. While I would like to pin my team's woeful performance squarely on the shoulders of Lady Luck, in reality, it was my own doing: I spent more time tweaking my data reports than actually using those reports to make decisions. Find out what else I learned by using performance analysis to understand where I went wrong.

    When it comes to BI features, don’t let pretty hide the truth

    Tableau misses the mark as a BI tool for the enterprise. They’ve attracted the attention of many power data analysts for their myriad of different visualization types, allowing complex data to be visualized into something more consumable. Problem is that Tableau was built as a visualization tool first and an analytics tool second.

    Tackling bye weeks and injuries with our BI Office storyboards

    Bye weeks and injuries are perhaps the most difficult challenges a fantasy football owner faces during the regular season. With that in mind, I created a storyboard in BI Office with the express purpose of helping me navigate bye weeks and injuries. My goal was to create a tool that would a) enable me to rapidly identify players who are injured or about to go on bye and b) efficiently identify the best free agents available to replace those players.
