Data for Decision Making is an online, asynchronous program with the flexibility for participants to start and complete the program on their own time. It focuses on the business leader using data and its hidden secrets to make and communicate better business decisions.
XLC recommends completing the program in 3 weeks. Access to the program will expire after 6 months.
This program is designed to familiarize participants with basic statistical tools, methods, and techniques used to transform raw data into actionable information. This information is used to support and validate business decisions. Using the vast array of data available in and outside an organization paired with basic statistical knowledge, leaders can predict trends and make decisions while assessing risk. This gives leaders a greater opportunity for them to outpace their competitors.
Data for Decision Making is designed for managers and emerging leaders who strive to lead others and make organizational decisions based on actual data.
Participants will walk away with these skills:
- Using statistical methods to create, analyze, and transform data into information used in business decision making
- Describing data using tools to measure central tendency and dispersion
