Are you looking to expand or develop an analytics team within your organization but unsure where to start? In a recent webinar, Adam Jorgensen and Devin Knight discussed how to build, manage and train an effective and efficient analytics team.
They start off discussing why it’s so important to have a world class analytics team and how you can access your current team using the ‘4 As’ (Attitude, Aptitude, Adaptability and Acceleration), as well as how to get your team from where they are today to a world class team. Areas discussed here are things like: rating your team on the ‘4 As’, creating capacity for movement, setting aggressive 90-day goals and getting creative with team activities while creating specific plans and targets.
What type of skills does your analytics team need? They’ll go over these too; such as data cleansing and modeling, data analysis expression, data visualization best practices and Power BI Administration, as well as data governance.
Also discussed are the ways to gain these skills from free webinars like this one to keeping up with blogs and YouTube to on-site and web-based training.
Last, but certainly not least, Adam and Devin will discuss ways to push your team with things such as setting goals, defining learning paths, finding out what motivates them and maybe a little healthy co-worker competition.
