Hello friends! Today’s episode is like no other! We learn the inside secrets to creating an internal Power BI community within an organization from none other than Khaled Chowdhury, Global Director, Data & Analytics with CMC Materials. Khaled is one of the doers who took what he learned from training, rode the excitement after class, and achieved buy-in at his company by tackling a huge project using a free resource over a weekend. When the powers that be were shown his quick, agile, and cost-effective results compared to the expensive, labor-intensive method formerly used by the company, they were sold. Khaled is a Power BI champion of the highest level after overcoming the “it's too cheap to be a good tool” perception that is cost-assigned value.
Pulling from his extensive background in building and transforming world-class teams, leveraging technology, and driving adoption, Khaled opines that most projects fail because new technology is seen as an invasion versus a revolution. Invasions happen from outside the organization, revolutions start from within. Perception, he says, is always key to implementation. If you are implementing a Power Platform project of your own, you can’t afford to miss this episode.
