About the course

This is a course not for analytics professionals, but for executives and managers who want to leverage analytics to support their most vital decisions.

The most valuable use of analytics is in support of the most important decisions in the organisation. The effective use of data and analysis promises better decision-making at all levels of the organisation, yet the highest levels tend to go unserved.

This course serves to empower senior executives with skills to make more effective use of data analytics. It covers strategic decision-making in a rigorous context, and shows attendees ways to use data to make better decisions. Attendees will learn how to receive, understand and make decisions from a range of analytics methods, including visualisation and dashboards. They will also be taught to work with analysts as effective customers.

This course will also offer a highly general, effective and applicable toolkit for objectively assessing leadership consensus on important decisions, making those decisions in a better and constantly improving way, objectively measuring decision-making effectiveness and identifying the best decision-makers in the team. Finally, this course will also cover the creation, management and necessary support of an effective and thriving analytics function in support of its executive sponsor and client.

Course instructor

Courses are taught by Dr Eugene Dubossarsky and his hand-picked team of highly skilled instructors.

Testimonials

Having studied stats at Uni I was surprised how far the field has progressed in the last few years, particularly in the area of big data. The great thing about Eugene’s course is I left with a sense that I was up to date with the latest big data modelling concepts but more importantly could also deploy them with some confidence using R. Eugene also made it clear he was available to answer questions after the course, so you are not left hanging. I would absolutely recommend this!
—Damon Rasheed, CEO, Rate Detective

For someone who does not come from an IT background R is a terrifying program. Before doing the Introduction to R course I had previously done other courses in R but always found myself in over my head because they assumed a high level of program experience (even course that required no prior programming knowledge). This course is not like that at all. It starts at ground zero and teaches you everything you need to know to be able to use R confidently in your everyday workplace. It is a must attend for anyone who wants use R!
—Alix Duncan

Data science can be a challenging topic but Eugene’s “Introduction to Machine Learning” course turns complex statistical models into plain English. The course contents and presentation were accessible and I enjoyed the mixture of hands-on rattle() exercises, the challenge of building multiple models with real life data, and the salient theory whiteboard discussions created many “aha” moments.

It was a great introductory course and it gave me with a better grasp of Machine Learning in general, a great framework for thinking about it and practical hands-on skills that I can put to immediate use. I wish I had done this course sooner.
—Charl Swart, Director of Business Operations, Unisys Credit Services
