Using data to improve your decision making

Make well-informed, evidence-based and timely decisions in all areas of your business with reliable data and good quality analysis.

Questions covered include:

  • What are the best sources of business data?
  • How can you evaluate the quality of data?
  • What are the analytical approaches taken?
  • What are the business tools available?
