Some executives mistakenly believe that the majority of value in business datasets is only unlocked by applying advanced statistical and machine learning techniques. In practice, most of the value in business data is derived by asking relatively simple questions that can be answered using basic data manipulation and common metrics (e.g. averages, totals, counts and percentages).
That said, the ability to ask the right business questions and answer them with the right metrics is a fundamental analytics skill that is sorely lacking in the skillset of most data analysts and managers. Why? University statistics and math programs don’t prepare graduates for the challenges and pace of the business setting. In this Excel based course, participants will learn how to progress through the full data driven decision making process, from identifying the business question through to hypothesis development, data manipulation and presenting of results.
This is our second most popular course. It’s suited to any professional who needs to make decisions using business data.

“Took Data Storytelling, and it was insightful from start to finish. Combine a celebrated instructor, well-thought out material, an energetic and responsive organising team and awesome co-trainees from different backgrounds and you’ve got a great package. There is so much to learn in this wide field, and they simply nailed it. They made it such that even a guy like me who is not an analytics practitioner could grasp fully. This certification was worth the time, money, and effort. I wish nothing but the best for the minds behind this training course. Thank you DataSeer!”Jerome
