In a world of rapid technological change, data-rich production processes, a purpose-driven talent pool, globally-integrated value chains, and calls for greater business accountability, business leaders must be equipped to make decisions that are both data-driven and values-based. That is, they must have the tools to critically evaluate and strategically utilize vast quantities of rapidly changing data using the latest analytic tools and techniques. In addition they must have the clarity, courage, and leadership skills to make decisions that respect personal/organizational values and societal responsibilities. This course presents a framework and set of tools for making values-based/data-driven decisions.
Cost for this two-day immersion training: $1,900.
