Power BI Project (DIY)
One of the objectives of the Power BI project is to give students an opportunity to learn and apply Power BI, a business intelligence tool, to analyzing “BIG DATA”. The application is to evaluate the financial performance of a fictitious company with transaction data given in the EXCEL worksheet, Power BI Financial Sample modified.xlsx.
Please find below some suggestions for working on the project:
1. Take a quick look at the data to gain a general understanding of the variables (columns), such as Product, Segment, etc.
2. Decide on the variables (columns) of interest for your assessment of the company’s financial performance, such as Sales units, Revenue, etc.
3. Decide on the type of visuals, e.g., clustered column chart, pie chart, gauge, etc., that are relevant in presenting the company’s financial performance.
4. Create the dashboard (at most three Exhibits (dashboards)) with a few visuals.
5. Prepare a two-page report evaluating the company’s financial performance based on the dashboard(s) and visual(s) developed.
-Please note that there is no “perfect” solution to the Power BI project. Each team will choose their own visuals and their report will be based on the selected visuals.
-Me and my teammate are splitting up #5, I am in charge of introduction, dashboard 3 analysis, and conclusion. See the document “INSTRUCTIONS” for more details.
Q: Can we get more context to the assignment?
A: You must create the context. You have been given data on companies. That is where you add value. You must change the data to information and give a write up. You can talk about patterns or trends you observe in evaluating the organization and in the introduction you can highlight the scope of the body of the write-up. You can comment on the industry you think these companies belong to: manufacturing, service, healthcare, etc. What do you think from the data given? Bring this data to Power BI, convert it to information by observing patterns and trends and exceptions. What would you do if your supervisor provided you with credit card data of 200,000 clients and told you to convert it to information. What context would you need? Just observe trends and patters and comment upon it. It is open ended by design. The context is cost data analysis. You are welcome to make qualitative comments too on the costs.
-The excel file I attached contains background information about the company, and contains the information that you see in the dashboards/visuals.
-the analysis and the dashboards/visuals should make sense when looked at in conjunction with
each other.
Q: What does evaluation of financial performance mean? Do I need to do a lot of calculations? Does this mean I have to focus on (specific financial metric)?
A: Not necessarily. The assignment is designed to be open -ended and as such, you can choose the topics your group would like to evaluate. What’s important is that you answer the “so what?” of your observations- the report should not just be a summary of what can be seen in the dashboards (i.e. “sales was the highest in this month at $XX and the lowest in this month at $XX” would be considered a summary and not the purpose of this evaluation). Along these lines, if you decide to include calculations outside of the scope of the assignment that requires multiple assumptions, state your assumptions in your final submission.

Introduction
For this discussion, you will have the opportunity to review the evidence and analysis of academic research to identify and defend a solution to a community issue. As you learned in previous DEC courses, being able to identify the credibility and validity of research articles is important because these types of articles tend to provide a high level of substantive value, which in turn can assist in creating more sound arguments. You will take this discussion activity a step further by reviewing in depth the evidence and analysis of academic articles to help identify their value as supportive evidence. This will be important to you when attempting to substantiate and defend your solution for your chosen community issue.
Secondary Responses
Provide a response to your classmates for the Discussion by answering the following questions:
Review the two articles provided by your classmates and then provide constructive feedback regarding the presentation of their findings.
Discuss how you believe your peers articulated the findings from their articles in plain terms and explain whether they were easy for you to comprehend and understand? What recommendations might you make to help your peers improve in their ability to write academic research findings in layman’s terms?
Discussion I am responding to:
Community Poverty, Industrialization, and Educational Gender Gaps in Rural China (Cherng & Hannum, 2013) investigates poverty in communities correlating to educational gender gaps in China. It notes that poverty shapes education levels. It notes gender and education gaps are among the poorest households (Cherng & Hannum, 2013). It discusses that communities in poverty and low-income countries are linked to educational gender gaps. It also states that girls, especially from poor households have a disadvantage compared to those of the opposite sex. It states that community support for education could benefit students and potentially narrow gender and education gaps. (Cherng & Hannum, 2013, p.4) The study ends by finding 3 major results. First it notes that communities in poverty correlate to gender gaps. Second that poverty shapes education gaps and third that girls in the wealthiest households fare better than boys in high-school.
The Value of Poverty: An Ethnographic Study of a School-Community Partnership (Lunneblad, 2020) is aimed at raising students’ achievement by opening schools for collaboration with the local community. The study follows a community with high unemployment levels and low income. It revealed a greater number of students that have dropped out and didn’t receive quality education. It shows that schools from disadvantaged areas are negatively affected by violence and insecurity in the local area. (Lunneblad, 2020, p.10). The consequences of which lead to low achievement and a lack of a safe environment. The study focused on social intervention of the school community and partnership with the local district. The aim was to identify needs and challenges by determining potential partners that could participate with the school community. The school chose to collaborate with associations and non-profit organizations.
These two articles will be vitally important when identifying and defending my potential solution to my community issue as they both devolve into educational gaps. One of gender dis-equality and another of a community in poverty. Both give great reflections as to what was done to ease the transition for the communities in poverty while partnering with the community and different associations. Both articles show that educational gaps correlate to poverty, but there are ways to fix the issues within the community.
