As consultants, many of the projects that we work on are similar, with many steps repeated verbatim across projects. Previously, our workflow was based largely in Microsoft Office, with our analysis done manually in Excel, our reports written in Word, and our presentations in Powerpoint. In 2015, we began using R for much of our analysis, including making slide decks and reports in RMarkdown. Our presentation discusses why we made the change, how we managed it, and advice for other consulting firms looking to do the same.
