Building a Report Development Workflow for Power BI

Richard Swinbank thinks about process:

In this series I’ll be talking a lot about workflow. Loosely speaking, report development workflow is the set of steps you have to take to create or update a Power BI report. This typically starts in Power BI desktop, and doesn’t end until users are able to get business value out of a report in the Power BI service.

A good workflow frees a report developer to do the things they like and are good at – understanding business problems, and crafting beautiful reports to help solve them. Anything that that doesn’t contribute to that just gets in the way – a bad workflow clutters up the development experience with peripheral tasks like version control, managing environments and performing deployments.

Richard shares a good number of thoughts on the matter, so check them out.
