Data for Directors is a first-of-its-kind program in Australia taught by Professor Simon Jackman, a man who literally wrote-the-book on data analysis in a modern context with Bayesian Analysis for the Social Sciences.
In Data for Directors, Professor Jackman will help to make sense of a new world where data is reshaping the workforce, but also where data skills can become obsolete within months.
Utilising management principles from his time as a data consultant at the US headquarters of Facebook and his current role as CEO of the United States Studies Centre, Professor Jackman will show how data can be a force of radical change in the workforce, informing every single management decision-making process.
How can data revolutionise hiring practices? How do you retain the best data talent in the most competitive sector of the workforce?
Data for Directors will cut through the buzz words so that senior managers can talk, guide and react to data policy, law, innovation and mining in a management context.
This is an essential program for the next generation of leaders who want to drive future agendas, not just react to them.
Run as an intensive one-day course, the Data for Directors program will be hosted at the Nanoscience Hub at the University of Sydney campus. Find out more here.
