Nothing beats hands-on experience with your data for learning how to navigate and solve any hiccups that may arise in an actual project.

There's a reason we recommend companies have multiple Champions 😉 Things are always better when you have people to help out. Set up regular check-ins with the team to share wins and pain points, problem-solve together, document lessons learned, and set new company standards.
