There’s no one else better qualified than myself, Mico Yuk, to turn BI naysayers into superfans using the BI Dashboard Formula (BIDF) methodology than today’s guest, Ron Reago. It’s his superpower!

I met Ron in June of 2012, and he’s the pinnacle of what our BIDF methodology can do for one's career and company. He’s BIDF's #1 global champion in the world, a low-key but well-respected oil/gas executive and a super-smart leader. In this epic episode of AoF, Ron candidly shares his successes and failures in BI, and how you too can turn doubtful users into raving fans by changing 'the story'. So much knowledge bombs.. enjoy!
