Course Description

This one-day course focuses on the most chronic and critical failing of the vast majority of advanced analytics implementations: project assessment, planning and design. The analytic professionals who apply the strategic principles conveyed within this course will obtain the rare soft skills to advance and stand out in this competitive practice.

This vendor-neutral course is designed to be taken independently, yet is part of a larger course series that covers an incremental 6-Phase Model Development Methodology for low-risk, high-impact projects. The scope of this course extends to the first phase: Plan.

Beyond lecture and demonstration, this course will actively lead you through structured and comprehensive analytic project design exercises that you can take home and apply. Those who stay for the full series will reference the completed design as the blueprints for full strategic implementation.
