Analytics and Decision-Making: Unlock the Power of Data

Master techniques for the collection, manipulation, and interpretation of data analytics to inform key business decisions and create impact.

Superior analytic capability spells competitive advantage — and success. With today's ubiquity of data, every organization needs leaders who can understand the impact of data, advocate for its effective use, and interpret analysis.

Through a deep-dive into the descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive levels of analytics, learn from renowned Carnegie Mellon University faculty — leading experts with cutting edge knowledge and a focus on application and results.

This program will equip you with not only a deeper understanding of the tools and techniques available, but an ability to identify potential use cases in your own organization, and importantly, to clearly convey insights garnered to executive management — driving implementation and results.

Key Takeaways

  • Gain a deeper understanding of analytic tools (both advantages and pitfalls).
  • Recognize potential opportunities and appropriate techniques.
  • Learn to effectively communicate results and recommendations to executive level management.
  • Prepare to credibly advocate for vital organizational culture change.
  • Recognize how to use data analytics to innovate and improve operational efficiency.

Who should attend?

  • This program is designed for middle managers or higher who have a holistic view of their companies and are responsible for making business decisions based on data insights. Participants should understand use cases and recognize opportunities. Often these candidates have a lot of data but may not know what to do with it.
  • The course develops leaders who can solve problems through an advanced understanding of data — how to use data tools, how to interpret the data and how to communicate the data for business decisions.
