Module 2 (4 days): Preparing for the role of Analytics Translator

    • Data and analytics use cases: We can learn a lot from other companies that have successfully integrated new technologies and analytics. We review a number of use cases from a variety of industries, including healthcare and government.
    • AI strategy and value chain, and determining the right business question: How do you connect your business strategy to AI and how do you get maximum value out of data science projects, given your high-level company goals?
    • EU Privacy and AI laws: A primer in EU legislation that needs to be considered when using data and algorithms.
    • Leading successful data science teams: Data analytics teams are multidisciplinary and cover many different skill sets. We offer structures that are helpful in getting flow in data analytics projects, and we also discuss what organisational infrastructure such projects need in order to be effective.
    • Data visualisation: You learn the design principles and the applicability of various visualisation techniques.
    • Data governance and data management: We explore the capabilities needed to ensure that high-quality data are available throughout the organisation in a secure and reliable way.
    • Capstone assignment: Participants work on a practical assignment, which they develop and discuss with fellow participants and instructors. In the assignment, participants identify a business opportunity in their own organisation where data and analytics could be of value, and translate it into a data-analytic problem. Part of the assignment is to identify the required data sources and where they could be obtained, and participants will also design a suitable organisational structure for deploying such a project in one’s own organisation.
