ICBE Advanced Productivity Skillnet | Data Literacy for Manufacturing/Operations/Engineering Functions, Level 1 – Starts November, 2020


With increasing digitisation within industry there is growing pressure on organisations to increase their overall data analytics maturity in order to become more data driven in how they make their business decisions. Most organisations capture and use data in order to obtain key information of significant value to their organisational growth. Feedback from ICBE members shows that organisations are struggling to manage their data lakes and to understand what data is relevant to help them make strategic decisions. They want to be able to communicate better with experts or data scientists to provide the insights as requests for custom insights become more common. The crucial capability in today’s Big Data world is being able to “translate” analytics- and data-driven insights into business implications and actions. Many organisations now believe all employees, regardless of technical expertise need access to advanced analytics capabilities quickly and easily. They need to get insights in near real-time, in context, and that are relevant to the business process or problem at hand.


As a result of this feedback, in March 2020 the ICBE Business Excellence Skillnet and the ICBE Advanced Productivity Skillnet commissioned Dave Clarke Analytics to design, develop and deliver a series of Data Literacy Programmes at Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced Levels. 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.

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, each with 3 levels of training :
