"Increasing Adoption of Analytics at the Manager Level: Strategies to Empower Managers to make

Top level executives leverage data and analytics to make strategic people decisions. But why aren’t more organizations providing data for use by all levels of management? Progressive organizations are decentralizing data access to empower their managers to make better decisions. Beyond providing data, these organizations are giving  the tools, training, and recommendations necessary for managers to discover and understand the data but turn that knowledge into action.

What you will learn:

  • Why managers need people analytics
  • How to increase adoption of analytics at the manager level
  • Creating a data-driven organization. Helping Managers become data-driven
  • How to implement data-centric processes
  • How to decentralize data at your organization
  • Data-oriented knowledge and skills for all manger
