Corporate ethos which demands continual improvement in work place efficiencies and reduced operating, maintenance, support service and administration costs means that managers, analysts, and their advisors are faced with ever-challenging analytical problems and performance targets. To make decisions which result in improved business performance it is vital to base decision making on appropriate analysis and interpretation of numerical data. This Oxford Management Centre training course aims to provide those involved in analysing numerical data with the understanding and practical capabilities needed to convert data into information via appropriate analysis, and then to represent these results in ways that can be readily communicated to others in the organisation.
This course adopts a problem-based learning approach, in which delegates are presented with a series of real numerical data analysis problems drawn from the widest possible range of applications - from engineering to finance and from logistics to quality control. Each problem presents and exemplifies the need for a different data analysis approach.
This Oxford Management Centre training course is entirely applications-oriented, minimizing the time spent on the mathematics of analysis and maximising the time spent on the use of practical methods in Excel, along with the understanding why such methods work. The participants on this course will, as a result of their training, be better positioned to influence the organisation with recommendations based on objective data analysis that in turn produce a higher performing business.
