The Global Superstore Case

This page contains student files for the case "Modern Retail Analytics: Data Visualization Using Tableau," by Maxime Cohen, Daniel Guetta, and Matthieu Reed. It includes three detailed tutorials that can be used by instructors in the classroom to introduce students to Tableau in the context of retail strategy and operations (using the Global Superstore dataset that is made available with Tableau). We also wrote a homework assignment with detailed solutions.

We're making this case available free of charge to all instructors. Speaking for ourselves, we know that when we initially began using Tableau and downloaded the dataset, we felt it would provide a tremendous teaching opportunity, but we felt it didn't come with any "polished" resources we could easily distribute to students for use in a classroom. We hope this case study will fill that gap.
