Designing Business Intelligence Reports
In this assignment, you will learn how to create new reports that will be used by different people in the organization. Business intelligence reports are very important communication tools in managerial decision-making and are targeted to a variety of audiences that include accountants, finance professionals, marketers, salespeople, product managers, among others. The relevance, utility and timeliness of presented information are critical for effective and efficient decision-making.
This exercise will provide you with a hands-on experience in understanding and building information-rich business reports.

In the new director’s keynote, he wants to go over some facts about current business performance and then use that data to make the case for a new strategy.
