Data Analytics

Training and Coaching for Finance & Accounting professionals

Why Training Services?

The ability to extract meaningful insights from financial information and use those insights to provide advisory value to your stakeholders is a skill that most companies seek in their future leaders. However, many of our highest potential candidates are so busy in the day-to-day scrubbing of hard-to-get information, that they rarely get the chance to practice their analytical skill and advance them.

If you have a group of professionals who wish to become impactful advisors to your stakeholders, consider incorporating our Analytics Development Program ©(ADP) into your learning programs.

The specific topics taught in each ADP are customized based on your company’s goals and the experience level of the group that you identify. Some of the more typical topics include:

  • Business Intelligence Concepts and Terms
  • Business Analytics Tools and Ecosystem
  • Data Management and Lifecycle
  • Bridging the gap between business and IT
  • Technical focus
    • Connecting to data sources
    • Transforming and preparing data for analytics
    • Performing analysis methods and techniques
    • Extracting insights
    • Visualizing data and communicating
    • Driving business results

Our clients find the combination of technical videos, self-guided reading, 1:1 coaching sessions and practical application of concepts not only effective, but convenient for their busy schedules. When the program ends, the participants will have gained tactical strategies for:

  • Methods to effectively analyze data and make quicker, better, and more informed business decisions

    • Master real-world spreadsheet modeling concepts
