Course Description

Data is one of the key assets for companies, which makes managing data a crucial competency in business today. It has become standard that business teams use at least some data to make their decisions in the everyday business processes. Having a lacking or faulty data management process in place can, therefore, lead to major errors and inconsistencies across analyses, with major impact both short and long term. Therefore, it is important that all members understand what is needed to manage data well to avoid these common mistakes. This Data Management training will teach you how to identify errors in your data and ensure that the results are accessible and comprehensible by other teams. With an extensive focus on the basics of data management and methods to execute quality control in your business
