The Fourth Industrial Revolution, as is being dubbed across the globe today, will thrive on technology, automation and data. Most strategic decisions involve deciding to continue with status, quo, stop or do something new. Today, companies have access to large amounts of data. Organisations that know how to use data effectively perform better. We see this trend in even the most traditional industry sectors such as farming. This course will prepare participants to ask the right questions, be skilled at identifying what data to use and analysing for information and insights, that inform the strategic question being asked. Working with industry partners this course will provide insight into how executives can use data to have an impact on an organisation.
