ICBE Business Excellence Skillnet and  ICBE Advanced Productivity Skillnet commissioned Clarke Analytics to design, develop and deliver a series of Data Literacy Programmes at Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced Levels – Levels 1, 2 and 3.

The courses are designed for professionals in non-data functions to actively understand and interact with data.  There is a strong emphasis throughout the courses on how to integrate data into day to day business decisions as well as long-term strategic planning. The key emphasis is on understanding, interpreting and communicating the outputs to/from data analysts and scientists. It would also allow participants to articulate their specific data needs to the relevant data function.

Key Course Differentiation:

The new cross-functional collaboration requirements of modern data initiatives are fully supported in these courses with collaborative workspaces and team exercises.  The course has a mixture of business content, data content and a collaborative project to ensure worthwhile learnings for participants.
The course is reinforced with real business cases and uses case project work to demonstrate the importance of collaboration across an organisation.

Tailored for industry, utilising real-life industry data sets, the purpose of this Data Literacy training is to build a learning path for non-IT professionals in Data Analytics.

There are 2 Streams of this program – to help people in all parts of your organisation speak the same language while building organisational data literacy & becoming a data-driven organisation
