The Data Driven Enterprise Series of courses is designed for teams, managers, and executives to learn how to use data driven thinking to design strategy, process, business intelligence products, business structures and the customer experience. Big data is a symptom of our times, a challenge, but ultimately THE opportunity for the modern enterprise to differentiate and disrupt. There is almost no latency for business decisions in today’s hyper-competitive climate. Data driven thinking empowers the enterprise to act. Companies with purposeful, data driven approaches to decisions outperform their peers in output and productivity. In fact, the highest performing organizations use data driven approaches five times more than the lowest performing organizations.
This series provides a foundation for how to curate (select, organize, present) data to support decision making at all levels of the enterprise with the introductory course, Data Curation for Decision Making. This course provides instruction on data curation approaches, metadata, data valuation, and decision engineering.
