What projects will I be working on?
Project 1: Sales Performance Analysis
The head of Product Management of a retail products company is responsible for determining which products his company should continue to offer for sale and which products should be discontinued from the company’s product catalogue. He wants to build a dashboard that will present monthly sales performance by product segment and product category to help him identify the segments and categories that have met or exceeded their sales targets, as well as those that have not met their sales targets.
Project 2: Customer Analysis
The head of Sales for a retail products company is responsible for increasing business from the company’s customers. He wants to build a dashboard that will present some statistics about the customers, a ranking of the customers by Profit Ratio, and a breakdown of each customer’s sales and profit performance. This information will be broken down by Region so that he can analyze the differences in customers across the company’s geography. He also wants to be able to break down the information by Segment, by Category, and by Year or Order Date.
Project 3: Product Analysis
The head of Product Management for a retail products company is also responsible for product pricing. He needs to determine if his products are appropriately priced to maximize both sales and profit ratio. He wants to build a dashboard that will present sales by product category over time, with the ability to drill down to the product and regional level. He also wants to be able to click on a specific product name to do a Google search for that product and to look at competitors’ pricing levels.
Project 4: Sales Dashboard
The CEO of a retail products company is very focused on the sales of the products her company sells, as she needs to deliver a presentation on the company’s sales results to the company’s Board of Directors every quarter. She is also interested in sales performance across the company’s four regions, as she is also responsible for setting sales performance targets for her sales teams in each region. She wants to build a dashboard that will present some metrics about products (such as sales, profits, profit ratio, etc.). She also wants to be able to see the trends of these statistics over time, and be able to filter down to one, more than one, or all geographic regions.
