Who is it for?
This course is useful for anyone that needs to present data, numbers, and related messages to management and non-professionals in focussed, concise and understandable way.
What does it cover?
This course shows how to present data, numbers, and related messages to management and non-professionals in focussed, concise and understandable ways. It will help you to communicate the results of your data analysis to decision makers effectively and with impact.
Many managers have little interest in numbers but do need to know the messages which are inherent in the numbers. Presentation can make all the difference between data which is acted on and work which receives little attention. Better presentation makes the output of your teams more widely accessible to the rest of the organisation.
The course content is based firmly on proven good practice and will also help you to avoid the common mistakes. It is delivered by tutors who have practical experience of communicating numerical and graphical information.
The course is designed for staff such as performance reporters or analysts who may need to convey numerical or graphical information clearly to non-specialists. It uses demonstrations, presentations, group exercises, and discussions.
An outline of fundamental concepts such as variable types, averages and measures of variability will also be distributed in advance
