This course aims to teach professionals how to lead this change, from planning to execution.
“You can invest in data technologies and collect all the data you can possibly imagine, but it’s worthless if it’s not analyzed or communicated to decision makers so that action can be taken from the insights.” -Forbes, March 2019
