Course description

Introduction to Statistical Data Analysis

Data is no longer scarce – it’s overpowering. The key is to analyse the overwhelming volume of data and correctly forecast future implications. Finance professionals know how important forecasting is, yet many fail to apply the fundamental concepts of statistical forecasting. Those that don’t use statistically robust forecasting face higher risks and uncertainty when reality diverges from their plans. Those that do use statistical forecasting are able plan for the future much more effectively and support decision making across the business with confidence.

This one day course, facilitated by members of the Royal Statistical Society, introduces participants to statistics and analyses and takes them through the six key concepts that underlie all statistical thinking and analysis. Using a mixture of discussion and exercises, each concept is broken down into an easily understood format. The course shows participants how to apply these concepts using Microsoft Excel.
