I can sure speak to this one!
We’ve been working on our Looker install for about a year, and I’d say the biggest thing for us has been actively holding Looker Tours, which last for about an hour, and are roughly half front-end showing-off along with a sort of internal sales pitch: I liken Looker to having a superpower, where anyone is able to explore our internal data as though they know the sum total of everything each developer knows (which is a lot!) - and then half back-end, here’s how the sausage is made type of thing.
These are live, via Zoom, probably 80% screenshare. I try to be as approachable and conversational as I can be, and welcome any and all questions: I’ve done enough at this point to appreciate the way that a group of marketers will think/approach it differently than a group of developers, but it’s great fun for everyone. We also record many of these and keep them in a shared Google Drive, where folks who are in tough time zones or don’t prefer a live conversation can still benefit.
Our team that focuses on Looker has also started to shift our ongoing Data Request process into Looker: where once we’d run ad-hoc queries and share .csv files, now we model data and produce and share quick Dashboards: the first time someone expects a .csv and gets a full color interactive dashboard with drill fields has been a huge source of a-ha moments for our organization, and almost always leads to later joining a Tour and then becoming an active consumer of Looker reporting.
We also work pretty hard to be super approachable, to answer questions, and to really advocate for the platform: having everyone on-board and also friendly and positive can make a huge difference.
Excited to see what other folks are doing here!
