Drinking Our Own Kool-Aid: Data Analytics for Non-Technical Professionals

Drinking Our Own Kool-Aid: Data Analytics for Non-Technical Professionals

A Two-day Workshop delivered through Tertiary Education Institutions

How do you know that the food or drink you’ve prepared tastes good? You taste it yourself. That’s our policy at Incus. Whatever we recommend to our clients, you can bet that we’ve tested and proven it internally so that the results speak for itself.

Our course Data Analytics for Non-Technical Professionals is no exception to this. On August 11th and 18th we recruited our staff for a full trial run of our workshop. They generously volunteered two Saturdays to learn and objectively critique the content and delivery of the course.

Just look at those eager faces!

The first session kicked off with a lively practical introduction to fundamental concepts using the data analytics software. Topics covered included:

  • Exploring the Traditional Approach to Data Analytics
  • A Modern Approach to Business Intelligence
  • Total Cost of Ownership
  • A Practical Session on Analytical Techniques: Sorting, Filtering, Aggregation.


The second session was equally exciting with loads of healthy discussion and a whopping dose of competition as the room was divided into smaller groups for thought-provoking exercises. The content delivered included:

  • Managing Change, Leadership Roles and People
  • Scaling a Culture of Analytic
  • Governance, Security and Ethics
  • A Practical Session on Metadata Management and Utilization


The feedback offered by the participants at the end of the two sessions was incredible and instrumental in refining and tailoring our course to deliver as much value as possible to our future audiences. We look forward to sharing our programme in the following months with non-technical professionals and changing the data analytics landscape across the Caribbean towards a data-driven culture.
