J├╝rgen Faisst

Hi, my name is Jürgen Faisst and I'm your instructor


My mission is to enhance your reports and dashboards by applying consistent design standards.

They say I'm a well-versed notation expert, appreciated instructor and experienced manager. And I'm a passionate musician writing arrangements. I also frequently serve as a key-note speaker at international conferences with topics such as "What business management can learn from musicians".

Together with my partner Rolf Hichert I've been writing Solid, outlined, hatched – How visual consistency helps better understand reports, presentations and dashboards, the book this course is based upon.
