Course Overview

All this data, but do your people know how to analyse and interpret it? Most importantly, can your people visualise data and tell compelling business stories for budgeting, project management, sales, customer centricity and customer satisfaction?

Today we are flooded with so much data in our systems. Every manager now needs to know how to analyse the data for insights, highlights and outliers and then produce graphical representation of information and data. By using visual elements like charts, graphs and maps, data visualisation tools provide an accessible way to see and
understand trends and patterns in data. Essentially it helps you tell stories with raw data to make better business decisions.

This 10-week programme will assist your teams in creating world class reports using Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Power BI. Your learners will get access to a learning platform, eLearning, virtual facilitator (Subject Matter Expert) sessions, a practical environment, group discussions, implementation-driven assignments, and model answers.It is the first step towards being able to use tools like Microsoft Excel and Power BI to analyse data whilst exposing students to two critical building blocks, namely Storytelling
and Data Visualisation.
