What can you expect on Module 6 – Analytic Approaches and Techniques

There are many ways to approach Analytics, depending on the problem to be solved. The challenges that businesses face today are typically very different to those that been faced in the past. Expectations have shifted, standards are higher, and disruption is the new norm.

This module will involve an introduction to the most widely used approaches to applying Analytics, within business today. We will explore and discuss each of these approaches; to understand “what” they provide, “when” they are effective as well as “how” they work. We will also delve into the science and the Data that underpins the Analytics, as well as the key dependencies to a successful Analytics initiative.

A vital part of any business initiative is employing the right technique to suit the situation. In the second section of this module, a range of the most common Analytics techniques will be discussed and assessed as to “why” they are used. We’ll look at some examples and discuss the role that technology can play; to reduce the human effort and time required to deliver value.
Join this course now – first module is next week 12th February.
