An Introduction to Data Skills & Capabilities for Non Specialists
December 7 - December 8
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 a “I think the answer is…” mindset based on intuition to a “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 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 shows you how to ask the right question, obtain 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.
