Program Description: 

Data informs the decision making process. However, complex techniques may strain limited staff resources and be less accessible and understandable to decision-makers. This makes the analysis results less likely to be incorporated into the decision-making process. Through this class, learn different analytical methods and their pros and cons, ultimately determining what might work well for the question asked and how to effectively communicate that to decision makers.

Seminar Objectives: 
  • Learn how to conduct preliminary analysis before determining appropriate in-depth analytical methods
  • Learn various analytical methods and their pros and cons, with special emphasis on techniques for forecasting
  • Identify strategies to communicate data using readily available tools
