This course is aimed primarily at executives and managers, and anyone who wants to leverage analytics to support their most vital decisions.

The most valuable use of analytics is in support of the most important decisions in the organisation. The effective use of data and analysis promises better decision making at all levels of the organisation, yet the highest levels tend to go unserved.

This course serves to empower senior executives with skills to make more effective use of data analytics. The course covers strategic decision making  in a rigorous context, and shows attendees ways to use data to make better decisions.

Attendees will learn how to receive, understand and make decisions from a range of analytics methods, including visualisation and dashboards. They will also be taught to work with analysts as effective customers. This course will also offer a highly general, effective and applicable toolkit for objectively assessing leadership consensus on important decisions, making those decisions in a better and constantly improving way, objectively measuring decision making effectiveness and identifying the best decision makers in the team. Finally, this course will also cover the creation, management and necessary support of an effective and thriving analytics function in support of its executive sponsor and client.

NB. This course was formerly named “Data-driven decision-making for Executives and Managers“.

Eugene’s courses are not your standard technical courses where you learn how to put data into a model and get a result. The real life experiences – warts and all – he brings to the instruction mean that attendees walk away with a better understanding of the real life challenges of analytics as well as the technical know-how. We routinely send our team members on these courses to help them get the capabilities that really help our clients get better insights from their data.

James Beresford, Director, Agile BI

Eugene’s introductory course to data science was outstanding. I found the subject matter and delivery fascinating, accessible and informative. I found Eugene approachable, interesting to listen to and excellent at simplifying complex concepts. I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to know what data science—and all the buzz surrounding it!—are all about.
