In the first day of Business Analytics training, the participants acquire a complete understanding of Aryng’s Five-step Analytics Framework. They learn not only the technical aspects of how to derive insights from data, but also learn the softer skills of influencing, consensus-building, and communication to turn those insights into decisions. The five-step framework is brought home by using examples, exercises, and role-playing. The second day of Business Analytics Training, gives the participants an opportunity to test the techniques they have learned by solving a business case with their group. The group starts with a business problem, does analysis, and finishes with an executive presentation laden with powerful insights and actionable recommendations. This training is a unique and fun way to learn analytics in that participants are not required to have any technical or statistical background, but just curiosity and a desire to make decisions based on data.

The third day starts with Predictive Analytics training, where participants are first introduced to the fundamental concepts of test and learn, followed by an introduction to predictive analytics. The workshop covers the concepts behind the key predictive analytics techniques: Logistic Regression, Linear Regression, and Decision Tree, followed by case studies from Fortune 100 companies where predictive analytics helped drive bottom-line decisions and revenue. The Predictive Analytics Training also covers when to do predictive analytics versus when not to, additional training and self-learning resources, and finishes with a live demo of how to build a predictive model.

This 3-day analytics training workshop not only serves as a complete refresher for any seasoned analyst, but also as a great primer for business professionals new to analytics with a desire to learn analytics.
