Business & Decision in collaboration with the Radboud Management University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands) developed a unique course where exploiting the commercial value of data is central.
The 2 day workshop, geared at data scientists, BI managers, business analysts and project managers trains people to ask the right questions from a business perspective, judge data for its relevance and to translate it into innovative practices for the organization.
We now offer this unique, compact and intensive seminar, given by a professor business management, a fraud analytics entrepreneur, an information management consultant, and a big data practice leader at the European Data Innovation Hub.
The new extended understanding that the training offers, will make you the asset that every manager requests in his team. Someone who can support fact-based decision making to maximize profit in our resurgent economy.
Also available as a 8-day Executive Masterclass in Belgium later this autumn.
A Business Data Scientist is a role with three core skills:
The course Business Data Scientist is based on a model with three axes:
The course is meant for professionals working in or aspiring a career in data and/or business analysis. We strive for a balanced group in which various backgrounds are represented.
Module 1: The science of data science
This module focuses on the context of data science. In 2015 data is an important production factor for organizations and as such it must be organized in a dedicated manner. The foundations of data science will be dealt with: What are data, information, knowledge and intelligence? And how do these relate to each other?
What is data science? A process-based approach of data science will offer the student a grip on his or her professional domain.
Module 2: Data Analytics
This module will focus on data, data-analysis and tooling. We will look at different types of data, the process of data processing, different types of analyses, tools and applications.
We will discuss choices to be made: when do you use which technique. Different ‘levels of maturity’ are distinguished in this respect. We will also look at the ethics of data processing and the use of data

Module 3 - Business analytics and Tactics of the Data scientist
This module will focus on the role of business models in information and analysis processes. From an information science perspective, the role of (theoretic) models will be discussed and illustrated by means of practical examples. How can information or knowledge be produced using models? In addition, relevant business models will be looked into. First, we chose to look at models that offer a ‘strategic’ perspective on the organization. Thus, models will be discussed that are used for internal (product portfolio) analysis, as well as models that are suited for external (environmental) analyses. As in the other modules, the acquired knowledge will be applied to the case straight away where participants will present their case to the Board.
