Course description

Data Visualisation for Business Decisions

The rate at which businesses are able to accrue data with which to support decisions is steadily increasing.With more data to hand, Finance Professionals and Analysts should be able to provide decision makers with an increasingly insightful understanding of the options available to them. Decisions should therefore become quicker and easier to make.For many businesses, however, the opposite is happening. The time needed to work with increasingly large and diverse sets of data to understand what’s there and how it can be used is outweighing the benefits to be gained.This risks decision makers being guided more by gut feel and intuition than data driven evidence.Data visualisation is becoming an essential discipline for those wanting to explore data quickly in order to find the important trends, patterns, correlations and indicators of causation.As much an art form as it is a science it requires a ‘nose for the critical issues’ and then the ability to see into the data for relevant insights about those issues. It is also essential when communicating results from analysis.Infographics and visual images can tell a story much more clearly than numbers and words ever can. This helps to lift confidence in results and provide decision makers with much greater clarity about the way forward.Within this course participants use practical hands on exercises to discover what’s involved in effective data visualisation in support of ‘evidence based’ business decisions.It looks at the latest methods for analysing and representing data visually, within Excel and within a range of specialist tools.It explores how businesses can learn from the work of journalists how to employ data visualisation to reach the heart of critical issues within the world of financial and operational analytics and to influence decisions.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Finance, operational, and commercial managers in all sectors.
