We are excited to announce a partnership with Bellevue University, the beginnings of which are data science leadership and data science learning seminars on their online platform. The first is an upcoming lunch and learn following our recent book entitled: “Leading a Data-Driven Organization.”
This online lunch and learn will be:
December 4th and 6th, 11am-1pm each day
The seminar will outline a practical guide you can use to transform yourself and your organization to Win the Data Science Revolution!
It is specifically built for those who are tasked, or are going to be tasked, with leading the philosophical change that is Data-Driven Decision Making. The seminar will include topics like:
- what data science is
- how data science works
- how data science can drive better decisions
- how to implement ideas, and
- how to hire, train, and manage talent.
The seminar will also address some of the major barriers that leaders deal with when implementing data-driven decision making including:
- the bias of inactivity
- the bias of decision avoidance
- ROI for “science” projects
- acquiring resources
- choosing the right projects, and
- management’s ability to understand the results.
You will come away with a much better understanding of the people you are managing, the people who need their predictions, and how to stand in between both camps.
Bellevue University is a private, non-profit, accredited university physically located in Omaha, NE but teaches students around the globe. They offer career-relevant bachelors, masters, Ph.D. degree programs including a Masters in data science and one in Business Intelligence.
CAN and Bellevue have decided to partner together in an effort to provide seminars and lunch and learns about relevant topics in data science. Our goal is to produce a monthly talk about relevant topics such as Data Science Legal, Practical Machine Learning, Data Science Leadership, Data Science Sales, Data Science Implementation, and hopefully, eventually, the entire Data Science Academy for Credit.
