BRIDGING THE DIGITAL GAP
AMCHAMTT, UWI-Roytec and the INCUS Academy are pleased to announce its Data Analytics training programme to upskill non-technical professionals and close the knowledge gaps needed to operate in this new normal. We hope to train 6,000 people over the next 12 months.
The Data Analytics program is specifically designed and customized for non-technical business professionals who see the strategic value of data. They aspire to be data driven in their approach but end up spending countless hours crunching numbers in Excel and other traditional reporting tools. This two-day virtual workshop is also for managers who wait on monthly reports but need real-time information to make point in time decisions.
Participants of this workshop session have been able to obtain deep visibility and key insights to identify trends, patterns and abnormalities in their data quicker. Participants will be provided with hands-on exercises and the opportunity to develop and present highly impactful use cases that will have significant influence on the top and/or bottom line of their respective organizations.
We have also taken into consideration the major economic impact the pandemic has had on our country and the scale at which we need these skills. We have decided to facilitate this training at a highly reduced rate with an overall goal to positively impact as many individuals and businesses as possible.
Please find the Data Analytics outline here.
What Have Prior Attendees Said?
…What really captivated me was the attention to the learner's experience. It was clear to me that #teamincus does not only talk the talk but they walk/live it. Only 'a passion and understanding of the power of analyzing data to appreciate the user's… journey' could explain how seamless this course was delivered…
