Analytical Effectiveness: Foundation II – Data Analytics Course
Part 2 – April 16th-17th in Manchester (Chambers of Commerce)
Analytical Effectiveness: Foundation II - Data Analytics Course
As with the Foundation I programme, Analytical Effectiveness: Foundation II is suitable for BI professionals, Credit Risk Analysts, Insight and Marketing Analysts – generally anyone whose job requires them to report on data analysis to colleagues, customers and stakeholders, and is not a total newcomer to the role.
What skills do I gain?
- Dealing with stakeholders and decision makers.
- Managing suppliers’ expectations.
- Delivering persuasive presentations.
- Elevating your analytical authority.
- Influencing decision making.
We give you transferable skills you can take away and apply immediately to Big Data analytics and reporting, data communication and presentations, negotiation skills and persuading stakeholders.
These are skills that will continue to serve you well in the future – and while this is an intermediate-level workshop for data analysts with some time spent in the role, the earlier in your career you attend, the longer you will benefit from the skills and techniques you learn.
What do I need?
There are no absolute pre-requisites, but as an intermediate-level workshop, it is advantageous if you either have attended the equivalent Foundation I workshop or have worked in your role for at least a year and have good knowledge of the general skills. Both would be even better.
What's on the schedule?
Day 1 AM: Pro-active Analytical Service
As always we start with a general overview of how to provide a good analytical service, in particular adopting a pro-active approach to customer and stakeholder consultation.
Day 1 PM and Day 2 AM: Managing and Influencing Stakeholders
The biggest segment of this workshop takes us overnight into day two, covering topics like:
- Negotiation and transparent planning.
- Personality types and emotional intelligence.
- Influencing skills.
Learn to manage the expectations of customers and stakeholders – an essential skill in order to ensure maximum satisfaction on delivery.
Day 2 PM: Managing Suppliers
When you are not in total control of the project – due to reliance on a third party, for example to supply you with a data stream – good management can make the difference between delivering on time, and missing a vital deadline.
Day 3 AM: Enhanced Analytical Thinking
Incorporating advanced techniques and approaches such as 80/20 to deliver on time – however tight the deadline may be.
Day 3 PM: Developing a Persuasive Presentation
How to introduce fresh thinking in your presentations and make sure they convince your audience of your key message or argument.
Day 4: Case Studies
We end with some worked real-world examples, where delegates are invited to apply the skills they have learned to deliver effective outputs, which will then be evaluated by the group and the session facilitators.
