Analytics for executives

Being data literate is essential for executives and managers if they are to enact a data strategy that will support their organizations grand vision. Leaders must therefore improve their understanding of how data can be used in their organization. Data literate leaders recognize opportunities to derive value from data and are adept at avoiding the hype of the latest industry buzzwords. They can define and effectively communicate the business value data can bring from the onset, and not as an afterthought.

This program is designed to develop your leaders into data champions. Leaders will be able to:

  • Clarify priorities and speed up transformation by making the right resource allocation decisions in talent development, platforms and experiments to learn from
  • Develop data value stories that keep the organization and teams aligned to the vision

Intended audience:
C-level managers, analytics champions, analytics project managers, and strategy teams. 

This program is a single workshop or a series of executive briefing sessions. An executive briefing session would require an hour long consultation and planning, and thereafter, an executive presentation would be designed and positioned to address your specific needs.
