Formerly known as “DGT003: Managing Business Performance With Business Analytics”

Programme Objective
Business Objectives, Performance KPIs, Benchmarks and Balanced Scorecards are useful tools for strategic planning, implementation, evaluation and achieving results for businesses. There is no shortage of management tools. In the VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) 21st century, big data is pervasive with the proliferation of social media, IoT, e-commerce, digital technology and Artificial Intelligence. Business Analytics (BA) focuses on developing new insights and understanding of business performance utilizing the data and statistical methods. Advanced business analytics leverage on these big data using AI and Machine Learning.
Executive Information System, Business Intelligence, data mining and data analytics have been employed to provide insights on revenues, customers, products and other factors for business decisions in the last two decades. Moving forward, how do organizations better leverage on these data for business analytics? How does business analytics lead to strategic and organizational performance? Can business afford not to understand and adopt data analytics today when the future depends on digital transformation for competitive advantage?

Learning Outcomes
Delegates will learn to understand conventional and advanced Business Analytics and why this is a critical success factor for businesses today moving into the 21st Century. They will appreciate the types of data analytics and statistical methods for descriptive, predictive, prescriptive and decisive insights in a business. The programme will also cover the what, why and how AI works and the benefits that can be derived from their usage.
