When I joined Watershed, the product was just a login screen and two reports that had to be loaded by a developer. During my time at Watershed, I helped design and launch everything in the product including: dashboarding creation, design, and management tools; 17 customizable report types; custom data visualizations; report filtering, configuration, and sharing tools; data ingestion, transformation, and debugging tools; and administrative settings tools.

A key challenge that Watershed had, was that in addition to creating a new type of product for the learning and development industry they also had to create a market for the product. I spent a lot of my time at Watershed designing product concepts that would get prospects excited about the product and company. Iā€™m unfortunately unable to share those concepts due to an NDA.

One of my favorite report types that I designed was called the Activity report. The idea behind this report was that a user could configure it using a single learning activity, like an assessment, and it would display a ton of information. I had a lot of fun figuring out the types of visualizations to use for this report.
