Seminar "Data Analytics for Executives"
Understanding data analysis is an essential skill for modern managers. It is no longer enough to hand responsibility off to data experts. To be able to rely on the evidence your analysts give you, you need to know where it comes from and how it was generated—and what it can and can’t teach you.
Using quantitative analysis as part of executive decision making helps you uncover new information and provides you with more conﬁdence in your choices—and you don’t need to be deeply proﬁcient in statistics to do it. This self-paced course will give you the basics to better understand data and analytics, and how quantitative methods help you with challenging business decisions.
We will cover the three fundamental steps of data analysis: gathering information, making sense of data, and communicating the results to get buy-in and motivate others to action. This is a higher level course for managers, and the focus in not on learning statistics. That being said, we will learn some important and commonly used techniques of analysis as part of the course. No prior knowledge of statistics is required for you to understand and learn these tools.
