The Covid-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on communities around the world. The impact has been felt in healthcare, economic, business, government, education, and social areas. It has put people at odds over vaccines, placed local government policies against federal policies, and beliefs versus medicine. Some may say the world we are living in is full of chaos over this situation. Businesses are demanding that employees get vaccinated or face termination of employment. And this has led to a situation where the legality of getting vaccinated has reached the state courthouse in Your State, USA.
The stage has been set for two opposing legal teams to argue their case before the state supreme court in Your State, USA. A very large grocery store chain, Fine Foods, has asked that their employees get vaccinated or face termination of employment. The company argues that as a supplier of goods and services to government entities, Fine Foods must follow vaccine guidelines set by Your State, USA. The Grocery Union
Workers of America is arguing that their members cannot be required to get vaccinated and that this is against the law.
For this assignment, you will choose a legal team, either Fine Foods or Grocery Union Workers of America (GUWA). Your role is a data analyst for the respective law firm representing the side YOU choose. The lead attorney has tasked you with extracting data to support their legal case for vaccinations. If you choose the Fine Foods legal team, you will support all employees getting vaccinated. If you choose the Grocery Union Workers of America (GUWA) legal team, you will support a person’s right to choose to get vaccinated and of course, not lose their job. It is important for you to focus on your role as data analyst and provide data. You should not try to present any actual laws pertinent to Covid-19.
Although this topic may be emotionally charged, your job is to present data-centric evidence which can be presented in court. Your data should be credible and convincing.
You have been suggesting to the law firm that in order to make more effective court presentations, the firm needs to invest in data visualization software. This case and the related datasets have brought this issue to the forefront. So now the lead attorney has asked you to conduct a study identifying the best visualization tools that fit the firm’s current and future presentation needs.
The tools you recommend need to have a short learning curve, adequate features, and be able to be acquired at a reasonable cost. Your initial investigation has narrowed your selection down to three data visualization tools. Follow the instructions below and submit your study in Microsoft Word:
- Your submission should include an introduction as to why the study is being done, a matrix table, and a conclusion with your recommendation.
- Create a matrix table of the three data visualization tools whose pertinent features closely match the needs of the firm.
- Include a rating system for “ease of learning” and “use of the tool.”
- Show cost information, including subscription and maintenance fees
- Rank the products in order of your recommendation and include your rationale.
- Note: The submission for this study should be in Microsoft Word format. The matrix can be created using the insert table feature in Word, or you can embed the matrix from an Excel worksheet.
