Data Driven Office Operations and Management
Tuesday, May 6, 03:00 PM - 05:00 PM - Main 329
Facilitator: Dr. Stanley Nwoji, Assistant Professor of Business, SPS
Today’s organizations are acquiring and storing data at a rate unprecedented since time immemorial. However, what organizations do with the data will make or mar their growth. Data-driven strategic organizations (or data-driven functional units within an organization) have sustained competitive advantage, and above-average returns. The time to base decisions on mere intuitions, as great as such decisions may be, has gone. Quantitative and qualitative data analyses of collected data must become the foundation of organizational planning, and decision making. This course will help participants understand the basics of quantitative and qualitative data analyses. Most strategic organizations require managers to be data-driven, but the operatives are merely consumers of the outcomes of the analyses. In today’s global business, every employee, no matter the level, must become data-driven for the organization to acquire sustained competitive advantage in an ever-changing global environment.
Participants who go through this course will be able to:
(1) Understand the nature of data collected by his/her department.
(2) Differentiate collected data into the different types.
(3) Analyze collected data.
(4) Make informed inputs for the improvement of departmental operations based on analyzed data
(5) Make decisions based on analyzed data.
(6) Forecast trends that would help the department and the organization as a whole to have sustained competitive advantage.
