Event Details

Duration: 2 days
Cost: €950

Overview: Project management is an in-depth skill that is required in all aspects of business.  Analytics projects have their own particular specialities demanding an analytics-oriented project management approach.  This course describes good general project management practice and methodologies.  It then focuses on providing the scaffolding for analytics project management specifically.   This course provides a ‘how to’ guide for those who will need to be actively involved in managing the project, as opposed to a general introduction for those who are building analytics teams (which is provided in our ‘Analytics for Managers’ course).

Objectives: At completion, delegates will be ready to effectively manage the use of analytics to extract actionable insight from data at their organisations. They will also be able to implement best-practice in building analytics teams and managing their projects.

Who: This course is aimed at technical managers and project managers who are tasked with running analytics projects within their organisations or for client organisations.  

Pre-requisites: A sound understanding of data analytics and its applications is assumed.  For an introduction to building analytics teams and understanding analytics projects, please see the ‘Analytics for Managers’ course.
