Almost every job function in every industry is heavily reliant upon the analysis and interpretation of data; from HR to finance, from engineering to chemistry, every function needs to take numbers which have been measured on a process or system and manipulate them to extract information which can be used to assess or to interpret or to predict.
Data without analysis is just numbers. But when the correct analysis is performed, in a careful and controlled way, just numbers can be turned into valuable information and this can be used as the basis of informed decision making.
Data analysis is critically important to the future of your organization and absolutely worth the investment to make sure you are telling the right story, to the right people, at the right time.
Regardless of what industry you work in, you are likely to be left behind if you lack basic analytical skills. Taking a proactive approach may end up saving you time — and a hassle – further down the line.
