Data analytics is a crucial tool in business today. We will focus throughout on developing skills for practical hands on data analysis. The aim is to help delegates to give evidence-based answers to questions: 

What has happened?

  • processing and analyzing data
  • producing informative data visualizations

What will happen?

  • forecasting future performance
  • evaluating forecasts

What should happen?

  • turning data into evidence-based business decisions
  • optimizing processes

The course itself can be delivered either as a 6 day classroom course or remotely over a period of weeks if preferred. We can work with you to deliver the course to best suit your needs.
