Event description:

Nowadays data surrounds us. From (social) media to our own company systems, almost everything we do leaves a data-print. Still, very few companies succeed in tapping into this datastream and leverage it to improve their decision making. In this training we will go over the advantages of making decisions backed up by data, the common reasons why we fail to do so, and show you hands-on how you can start using your data in an easy and convenient way using available tools.


What you will learn:

  • How data and algorithms can improve our decision making
  • How you can easily and quickly tackle simple problems by yourself
  • How and what more advanced solutions might look like
  • How our brains can sometimes deceive us
  • What to look for in solution vendors to make a good decision
  • What the future will bring for data-driven management
