The modern organisational manager or specialist is expected to work with the masses of data available from organisation-wide IT systems and to be able to provide precise analysis and recommendations for senior managers/executives or to make decisions supported by facts.
To do this effectively means recognising patterns and analysing these using the best tools for the job, often in the form of computer spreadsheets and associated add-ins. This will involve recognising trends and what these mean for the organisation, as well as being able to predict the sensitivity of decisions to changes in attributes, for example the cost of fuel to a transportation form.
This engaging and interactive course will provide you with a rich toolset to help you make better decisions and recommendations, thus building your capability and confidence in using data analysis as part of your job role.
