Big Data

The goal of this programme is to teach business leaders, managers and team leaders the concepts they need to change their companies into a data-driven company and gives them the first encounter with tools their staff-members will use.

With more than 65 years of experience in management development, we understand that today’s managers need to understand the drivers of the success of their organisation. Most organisations generate and/or have access to a wealth of data. However, we all know that data is not the same thing as knowledge. Data is not helping your organisation to succeed if your organisation does not have the tools for interpreting these data or the expertise to use data analytical tools. Managers do increasingly need to be data savvy themselves. If you want to manage your organisation’s ability to create value from data, then you need to understand the basics of data-analytics, then you need to be able to apply. That ‘s the knowledge you will gain through this executive programme. It is designed, to equip you to turn data into a competitive advantage for your organisation.

We will work with a user-friendly data management and reporting tools that allow you to quickly gain an understanding of patterns in datasets and how such patterns can be used to optimize operations and services. Visualization of operations data can help you to identify and achieve improvements in efficiency and effectiveness.

Next we will dive deeper into the promise of data analytics as a driver of organisational improvement. Once you are comfortable visualising and making sense of your data you probably would like to utilise those insights to make better decisions.

"Decision making without data, is like operating with a butcher’s knife. The Right Data puts precision tools in your hands, like a surgeon’s scalpel."- Dr. Vincent Feltkamp, lead trainer in the Big Data programme
