  • 500 Singapore dollars

Service Description

Decision-making in business is at a critical juncture where the reliance on subjective judgment calls is being challenged by the undeniable power of objective, data-driven insights. Yet, the leap from intuition to analytics is hindered by a common barrier: the intimidating complexity of statistical analysis, often perceived as beyond reach for those not well-versed in quantitative skills. The gap between the potential of data analytics and its application in everyday business decisions widens with every missed opportunity and misdirected strategy that stems from guesswork. This divide is further exacerbated by the daunting nature of statistics, which, for many, remains shrouded in academic jargon and complexity. As Jim Barksdale aptly noted, without data, we default to opinions—a precarious foundation for any strategic decision in today’s data-centric world. This workshop is a beacon for those looking to navigate the analytics value chain without getting lost in the statistical wilderness. Scheduled for an immersive one-day experience, this workshop demystifies the statistical concepts and approaches in an accessible manner, tailor-made for laypeople. Participants will engage with real-world datasets, employing analytical concepts to extract objective insights, all presented in a language that resonates with non-experts. Learning outcomes - Understand the analytics value chain and process and the role that data mining and analysis plays in it - Appreciate that there are two types of analytics - Descriptive and Inferential - Learn how to describe data accurately and how to conduct descriptive analysis to understand the current state of the workforce.
