Using Data for Business Strategy and Decisions

Using Strategic Analysis to Build BA-IT Partnerships

The amount of data available to businesses and other organizations is expanding every day. Innovative “big data” applications capture headlines and market share, but how can you use data to improve your projects and operational performance? Improve your understanding of data and statistics by learning about and discussing the essentials of data, analyzing data and making business decisions with data in this seminar. Explore application examples and a case study. Talk about information on scorecards and dashboards.

Understanding your entire organization and its business needs will help your project succeed. The IT-business divide is often a key factor in project failures, because it lacks any formal structure to align IT investments with business strategy. Create the framework for a successful BA-IT partnership in the development of effective business requirements.

Learning Outcomes • Understand bad data and how it leads to bad decisions • Communicate your needs to data scientists and architects • Understand descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, predictive analytics and converting statistical conclusions to business decisions 5025-10252 Sep 21-22 8:30am-4:30pm $845 Joe Brancaccio 1.4 CEUs, 14 PDUs

Project success starts with selecting the best methodology for your business context and project constraints. Fundamental factors such as scope, budget, resource, time and quality all contribute to determining if a methodology is right for your project.

Look for courses with discounts for registering early.

Parking

A full refund is issued to program participants if the School of Continuing Education cancels a program for any reason. Participant withdrawals made at least two weeks (14 days) prior to the start of a program can receive a 100% refund. When a participant withdraws less than two weeks prior to the program start, participants may have their fees transferred one time to any currently available program, otherwise participants will receive a refund minus a 20% administrative fee. For programs with a fee of $35 or less, no refund will be given. Once a program has begun, refunds are no longer issued.

Where to Stay Visit uwm.edu/sce-hotels for an abundance of nearby lodging options. Please note that participants make their own travel reservations. UWM recommends making reservations that can be cancelled or transferred in case of program changes.
