Today all leading organizations are rapidly gaining power by leveraging information to gain insights and drive the business. Business analytics delivers actionable insights – new interpretations and evaluations of business performance based on data using simple yet powerful statistical techniques: Aggregate Analysis, Correlation Analysis, Trend Analysis and Sizing Analysis.
And that is the focus of this hands-on workshop, to give business professionals a tool, a recipe to glean insights from data and drive impact. This is done using Aryng's proprietary BADIR framework.
The BADIR framework takes the business professional on a journey that begins with a business question, proceeds to core analysis, and concludes by deriving insights and making an impact. The framework has 2 parallel tracks- Blue track is the technical track, towards insights. Green track covers the business/soft side of decision making using data. Together they complete the process of Analytics, which doesn't just stop at insights but extends into decisions, into actions and ultimately $'s.
On the technical side, the course covers (1) Aggregate analysis - average, standard deviation, variance, error, z-score, confidence interval (2) Correlation Analysis - Pearson's Coefficient, cross tabs (3) Trend Analysis (4) Sizing and Estimation. All the analysis is done using widely available Microsoft Excel, and the course also covers primer on excel. The material is brought home using examples, exercises and role-play.
The agenda also covers approaches to communicating analytical findings, delivering powerful presentations, and best practices to build impactful KPI dashboards.
Case Simulation: On Day-2, participants work in their groups to solve a real business situation starting from an inquiry/a thought to presenting to the class with definitive answers and recommendations towards the business problem.
