Course Description

Introduction

Corporate ethos which demands continual improvement in workplace efficiencies and reduced operating, maintenance, support service and administration costs means that managers, analysts, and their advisors are faced with ever-challenging analytical problems and performance targets. To make decisions which result in improved business performance it is vital to base decision making on appropriate analysis and interpretation of numerical data.

Objectives

This GLOMACS Data Analysis Techniques online training course aims to provide those involved in analysing numerical data with the understanding and practical capabilities needed to convert data into information via appropriate analysis, and then to represent these results in ways that can be readily communicated to others in the organisation.

Objectives include:

  • To provide delegates with both an understanding and practical experience of a range of the more common analytical techniques and representation methods for numerical data
  • To give delegates the ability to recognize which types of analysis are best suited to particular types of problems
  • To give delegates sufficient background and theoretical knowledge to be able to judge when an applied technique will likely lead to incorrect conclusions
  • To provide delegates with a working vocabulary of analytical terms to enable them to converse with people who are experts in the areas of data analysis, statistics, and probability, and to be able to read and comprehend common textbooks and journal articles in this field
  • To introduce some basic statistical methods and concepts
  • To explore the use of Excel 2010 or 2013 for data analysis and the capabilities of the Data Analysis Tool Pack

It should be noted that the online training course does not cover the subjects of data acquisition, databases, data management, data warehousing or the analysis of text-based information.

Training Methodology

This online training course will utilize a variety of proven online learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, retention of the information presented. The training course is conducted Online via an Advanced Virtual Learning Platform in the comfort of any location of your choice.

Organisational Impact

Organisations that are able to make optimum decisions will enhance their ability to compete on the global stage. The participants on this GLOMACS online training course, and therefore the teams that they work within will, as a result of their training, be better positioned to influence the organisation with recommendations based on objective data analysis that in turn produce a higher performing business.

Individuals exposed to this online training course will develop new insights into the use of Excel and the field of data analysis, and they will learn why the best companies in the world see data analysis as being essential to delivering the right quality products and services at the lowest costs.

Personal Impact

Participants will gain an understanding and practical experience of a range of the more common analytical techniques and data representation methods, which have direct relevance to a wide range of issues. The ability to recognize which types of analysis are best suited to particular types of issue will be addressed, and delegates will be given sufficient background and theoretical knowledge to be able to judge when an applied technique will likely lead to incorrect conclusions.

Who Should Attend?

This Data Analysis Techniques online training course has been designed for professionals whose jobs involve in the manipulation, representation, interpretation and/or analysis of data. Familiarity with a PC and in particular with Microsoft Excel (2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013) is assumed.

This online training course involves extensive computer-based data analysis using Excel 2010 and therefore delegates will be expected to be numerate and to enjoy working with numerical data on a computer.
