This programme shows participants how to take the incomplete, messy and complex data they come across in their day-to-day jobs and use it to create rigorous analysis that supports the challenging decisions organisations need to make. It consists of a three-day classroom training course, with options group mentoring and or one-to-one mentoring with a viva assessment. It is available in-house at your organisation for groups of 8-16 participants. Previous participants range from data analysts to project managers, fast streamers and strategy team members.
During the course, participants will learn how to:
- Gather and work with data sources
- Develop options
- Build accessible MS Excel models that take uncertainty into account
- Summarise data
- Develop insight
- Create visual representations to support decision making
Ideally, each participant undertakes a project following the training that addresses one or more organisational strategic priorities, over a period of 3-4 months. One-to-one and/or group mentoring support the participant in applying the techniques taught during this time. The programme concludes with a viva where the participant delivers a short presentation about their project to a senior panel from their organisation, who assess impact and capability development.
While some element of mentoring is strongly encouraged, Delivering Data Driven Insight is also available as a standalone training event.
