Day 1

The focus of the first day of the course is to get to know Power BI Desktop and Power Query, including the visualization options, and to allay any fears of making mistakes.


After a short round of introductions, there will be a tool introduction with joint exploration of the Power BI and Power Query user interface.

Loading and preparing data

You will learn how different data sources can be connected to Power BI and gain basic knowledge of how data can be prepared effectively.

Visualizations in Power BI

We get to know the different types of visualizations in Power BI, including tricks to make visualizations more elegant and easier to understand.

Introduction to DAX

You will get to know Data Analysis Expressions (DAX). We will write our first calculations together and learn about the relevance of different contexts in the dashboard using practical examples.

Questions & Feedback

The day ends with an open round for questions and feedback.

Day 2

We deepen our understanding of data modeling and explore advanced elements of Power BI as we build our first full dashboard together. Get ready for your first own dashboard!

Basics of data modeling

You will learn how to handle different data bases, divide tables into fact and dimension tables and organize connections.

DAX Best Practices

We deepen our understanding of DAX and look at best practices for more complex calculations. Logical functions and the use of parameters are covered.

Visualization for advanced users

We dive into advanced dashboard elements (bookmarks, custom tooltips etc.) and build our first complete dashboard.

Questions & Feedback

Once again, there will be an open round for questions and feedback in order to continuously optimize the workshop.

Day 3

The last day of the practice-oriented Power BI training course is all about hands-on experience. We will work together to create your individual dashboard – from the idea to the mock-up and implementation. At the end of the workshop, you will go home with a finished dashboard.

Dashboard Loop

You will learn a structured approach to creating dashboards for customers and colleagues step by step in the right order.

Practical part 1: Mock-ups

Before we create the dashboard, we sketch it out with paper and pencil. This allows us to prioritize the answers to the important questions.

Practical part 2: Dashboard creation

Now you can freely create your dashboard! We provide assistance and examples of how best to visualize the data set.

Questions & Feedback

The training ends with an open round for questions and feedback. We value your feedback for future workshops.

Goal of the training

After successfully completing the course, you will be able to independently prepare data in Power Query, develop your own analyses and create appealing visualizations in Power BI. We will prepare you to understand and analyse your organization’s data treasures and use them to tell exciting stories. Not only will you go home with your first own dashboard, but also with plenty of motivation and a certificate for your participation in the training.
