Data Lab Events

In this full-day workshop, part of The Data Lab's CPD and training programme, you will learn the 9-step model for effective analysis. Through this framework, you’ll both see how to approach analysis for businesses and the softer skills you need to master each step. Based on over 15 years’ experience working with analytics teams, Paul provides delegates with plenty of opportunity to apply their skills and learn new ones.

Topics covered include:

  • Questioning skills, to get to the real business need;
  • Stakeholder Management, to achieve engagement;
  • Planning, design & delivery, to achieve your goals;
  • Communication & Data Visualisation;
  • Influencing to achieve action on recommendations.

As well as benefitting from a fun, interactive workshop, with plenty of time for questions, delegates will leave with:

  • Printed ‘aide memoire’ of the 9-step-model;
  • Digital copy of slides;
  • Socratic Questioning ‘crib sheet’
  • Recommended resources for further study on key topics
