Decision Making With a Data Driven Mindset

You don’t have to be a scientist to become data literate.

As data continues to grow in importance for organisations across industries, data literacy — one’s proficiency in the interpretation and communication of data and data-related activities — has become an increasingly crucial skill, even for those who are not data analysts, data engineers, or data scientists.

Developing such proficiency in data interpretation and communication certainly requires time and effort, but a certain mindset for approaching data and data-related problems also helps to facilitate the development of data literacy. 

In this short course, we will cover what we mean by a Data Mindset and Data Literacy, how to use Data to make better decisions and how to cultivate a Data Driven culture.

Decision Making with Data is the science of analysing raw data to make conclusions about that information. Data analytics help a business optimise its performance, perform more efficiently, maximise profit, or make more strategically-guided decisions.

Business leaders are recognising the benefits of having a data-driven mindset. It leads to real, strategic shifts for their companies. It allows them to think more long term and help them achieve beyond their expectations. 

From improving the quality of leads coming through their websites, to increasing customer lifetime value, there is a lot to gain for companies when their leaders have a data-driven mindset. Beyond the financial outcomes, having a shared data-driven mindset across a team or entire business improves collaboration and motivation. It makes for a better work environment all-round.

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
