Dashboard in a Day

Dashboard in a Day

Dashboard in a Day (DIAD) is a 1 Day hands-on workshop for Business Analysts, covering the breadth of Power BI capabilities.


At the end of the day, attendees will better understand how to:

  • Connect to, import, and transform data from a variety of sources
  • Define business rules and KPIs
  • Explore your data with powerful visualization tools
  • Build stunning reports
  • Share your dashboards with your team and/or the world


The last 2 hours of the day are dedicated to the customers bringing their own data, building reports and dashboards on it with the support of their instructor.


If you are attending a future DIAD event please click here to download the content. 


All DIAD workshop assets; presenter deck, demo scripts, step-by-step student Hands-on-Lab and dataset, plus a train the trainer video on how to execute a successful event, are updated monthly by the Power BI engineering team and are offered for free to all MPN Partners.


The DIAD assets are split into 2 parts:

Instructor content: which includes Presentation decks, Demo Scripts and train the trainer material, can be downloaded here. You will need your MSA account tied to your MPN ID to access this content.


Attendee content: which includes the Lab Manual and datasets, can be downloaded here. This content is also hosted on MPN but does not require MPN Access


The guidance for using the content is:

  1. Partners cannot make any changes to the dataset.
  2. If partners want to make any changes to the content, then they should brand the event as DIAD.
  3. The person presenting should be very familiar with Power BI and be able to answer any customer questions related to the workshop or Power Bi in general.


We are definitely open to feedback and enhancing the content and would love to hear and take feedback and iterate.

Please send your feedback to


If you are a customer looking to attend a DIAD, please reach out to your Microsoft representative or check our partner training offers in the Consulting Services Marketplace.

Re: Dashboard in a Day

Dear Chass,


Thanks for posting! Can you refer me anywhere to the schedule for DIAD training this year? I'm based in Atlanta and would love to do a training since we'll likely be using Power BI in our organization for routine monitoring data.
