Do you feel your department is falling behind in collecting, analysing, and using data? Are you struggling with creating new value streams by utilising customer-generated insights? If you need new tools to analyse data and methods to turn newly-generated insights into strategies that optimise performance, then this programme Digital Analytics and Customer Insights is right for you.
This three-day workshop provides you with the tools needed to manage data through analytics and design thinking principles, and teaches you management strategies to leverage value-adding opportunities.
Our data analytics and design thinking experts will teach you how to embed data management practices in your organisation, how to develop a data-driven strategy, and how to combine
direct insights from your customers with the use of big data. This programme presents a strategic view of data management, and how to use innovative design-thinking techniques when there’s little data available.
With professional guidance from faculty as well as your peers, you will learn techniques that you can use immediately to identify data opportunities in your department or organisation.
Digital Analytics is a module of RSM’s Diploma Programme in Digital Transformation (DPDT), but can also be followed separately. The programme will support you in creating winning business performance through digital transformation initiatives.
Learn how to take advantage of emerging disruptive technologies that are threatening to disrupt your industry, such as the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and block chain. You will focus on how to effectively compete in tomorrow’s digital landscape by anticipating digital trends and competitors’ responses.
Become a better strategic advisor who can influence, drive, and implement effective digital strategies.
Discover the tools and behaviours required to successfully deploy teams on your digital change strategies – essential to thrive in the new digital ecosystem. You will focus on gaining the knowledge, tools and skills needed to lead digital transformation in your organisation.
Learn how to feel confident to lead and manage digital transformation in your organisation.
Is your company struggling to embrace digital innovation? You will learn what changes you need to make to your business model, how to respond strategically to digitization and disruption, and discover how to introduce a future-proof and innovation-driven culture.
You will design your digital business model using the canvas, paying particular attention to your value propositions.
The Digital Analytics and Customer Insights Programme is for managers with data-driven and digital analytics responsibilities from any department, discipline or industry:
You will learn as much from other participants as from the faculty. To ensure a diverse and high-quality group and the value for you, please check if the points apply to your situation.
You are facing a challenge where you need to handle too much data, or you don’t know what to do with the data, or you will be soon moving in a position where you will have to deal with these challenges.
You will benefit the most from this programme if you work in a consumer-facing company, as many examples used are on this topic.
You have a basic understanding of how statistical models work (this is an advantage but it’s not mandatory).
If you are in an initial stage, looking into ‘how to collect data’, this course might not meet your needs. This topic is briefly touched upon, but it is not the main focus of the programme.
This DPDT programme offered the tools and aspects of digital transformation, which gave me a solid foundation to help my company make that step towards digital transformation.
