Data-Driven Decision Making Course

Upskill Your Teams with Remote Learning or On-Premise Options

Create New Business Models Using Data-Driven Insights

Organisations often have more data than they know what to do with. The question is, how do we turn this data into insights; and from insights into actions. 
This course enables business leaders and managers to understand the value of data, the power that can be gained from it, and when applied with emerging technologies, how to use it.

How to Implement Data-Driven Decision Making

The digital economy is powered by data. The future will be AI powered, and data science will be the skillset needed to drive AI. Data science is the means by which we gain new insights to strategic questions.

This course provides non-technical leaders and managers with the knowledge and skills to take advantage of data-enabled decision making.

  • Understand the business capabilities of emerging technology and how to leverage it
  • Familiarise non-technical business leaders with big data terminology
  • Help business leaders identify the value within their own data silos
  • Utilise internal and external data sources to identify commercial opportunities and operational efficiencies
