The Future of Business Will Be Data-Driven.


Is data reshaping your profession?

While data has always been used in business, things have changed. Functions like HR, Product Management, Sales, Marketing, and Customer Service are embracing advanced analytics to drive better business outcomes. In the future, employers will expect data skills just like they expect skills with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint today.


Do you want to be a part of this data-driven future?


It’s hard to avoid all the social media posts, magazine articles, and news clips trumpeting how analytics are permanently changing the way organizations operate – and changing the expectations of employers. Microsoft Excel is an exceedingly powerful analytical tool for ANY professional - when used with the right techniques. You can use your basic Excel skills to prepare for the data-driven future.


Will your lack of math/programming skills hold you back?


This course teaches you how to analyze business data using the mighty process behavior chart (PBC). PBCs are as remarkably powerful as they are simple. All you need to use PBCs to analyze your business data are basic Excel formulas to do the calculations.


Unlock powerful analytics

Using your basic Excel skills, you can learn to apply process behavior charts to your business data. With these charts you will be able to analyze data in a statistically rigorous, repeatable way. For example, this course will teach you how to compare groups of data for actual differences - no Excel statistical functions required!

"I've just completed Dave's Introduction to Business Analysis with Excel course. I found it hugely enjoyable, engaging and well paced. I learnt a lot of useful concepts which crucially I found I could relate to very well thanks to the courses use of Excel as a vehicle for teaching the ideas.

I would highly recommend Dave's material to anyone looking for a suitable launching pad into learning Data Analytics. I've tried many different platforms over the last few years, including the big MOOC platforms like Edx and Coursera and I've found Dave On Data to be by far the best for my purposes. I would also recommend you check out his YouTube channel."

"I am dual qualified as an engineer and teacher. I used SPC extensively when I was a semiconductor engineer previously. In an age of Power BI dashboards, it seems that using Excel to create process control charts are obsolete. Then Dave came along. 

He was able to explain in a very lucid way how Excel and the humble line chart can be supercharged. I was totally glued to the screen and hung on to every word. I understood how the past could be brought to the present. Not only that, I am now inspired to read more about the maths behind the charts. This topic is akin to watching paint dry. From a teaching point of view, for Dave to teach so well speaks volumes of his ability.

I wish Dave had come along when I was doing my data science course last year.  It would have made things so much easier to understand."
