Overview

Big data…big deal

Information is supposed to make us smarter, but more often than not, it simply overwhelms us.

This program is for you if you feel like you’re drowning in data and unsure which data to use to drive your company initiatives.

The truth is that the amount of data available to help run your business is greater than ever before. To effectively use this information, managers must consider the practical side of big data...what matters to you is how do you grow and build a team to make smarter decisions. 

Much of the information out there just discusses the promise of the data deluge. The challenge is not the volume of data but rather the judgment needed to use it. This webcast focuses on the abilities needed to discover, interpret and deliver data analytics across products and segments.

What You Will Learn

In this webcast, you’ll explore:
  • Specific skills to effectively frame the problem you’re addressing to uncover key opportunities and drive growth
  • Critical marketing steps of orientation necessary before engaging tools and technology
  • How to simply and quickly amplify decision making by separating the signal from the noise
  • 7 key questions you should be asking linking analytics to strategy.

Too often people dive into the data only to be lost in haze of data. This discussion will be pragmatic and immediately applicable to managers across all industries.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
