In People Analytics, students learn the power of using data to drive measurable business outcomes and design data-driven people strategies to catalyze change and transformation in the workforce. You will see how to find and use data, win support for your new people analytics program, diagnose missteps, predict success, and prescribe change based on data rather than intuition. With data as our foundation, we will discuss the four stages of analytics and common pitfalls of people analytics programs. Learn to motivate and inspire leaders to integrate data and analytics with their personal expertise, thus enabling a more effective use of an organization’s most precious resources: people’s time and energy.
