Big Data for Leadership

Peoples' lives are increasingly mediated through digital devices, and hence today's organisations have access to more information about customers, employees and the ecosystem of influence than ever before. But while many organisations know that they have Big Data, they rarely know how to make use of this resource to achieve innovation, growth and competitive advantage. 

This two-day programme that will enable those executives and managers who lead analytical teams to optimise their use of Big Data. Participants will learn how to identify strategic opportunities in the Big Data landscape and to ask the right questions of their analysts. 

You will have the chance to carry out machine learning, data visualisation and data mining tasks using existing software and code. This will give you insight into the types of practical problems that state-of-the-art big data analysis can solve; to recognise the difference between real and spurious results; and to have insight into the practical challenges that your data scientists face.
