An Introduction to Data Skills & Capabilities for Non Specialists
30 January 2023 - 31 January 2023
Today’s ever-growing volumes of data and the easy access to tools to make sense of that data are driving organisations, both public and private, to use data to answer questions and support decision-making.
Using data to support decisions helps organisations move from an “I think the answer is…” mindset based on intuition to an “I know the answer is…” mindset based on facts. However, simply having access to the data and the tools is not enough to promote data-driven decision-making. The people answering the questions and making the decision must have the ability to define questions in the terms of data and then locate, interpret and analyse the data to come to an answer.
In this interactive workshop you will learn the language of data and how to apply a simple, structured process that will show you how to ask the right question, obtains the most relevant data, make sense of the data, come to conclusions supported by the data and present the results to stakeholders in a way that is easy for them to comprehend and act on
