On-point and clear communication from verbal, slide decks, and print-outs. Presentation was hotttt
Fantastic workshop and one of the best I have ever been to! You kept our attention and engagement all day and really demonstrated to us that we can really improve how we get through all of the data and what we really need and want from it. –Claims Executive, Fortune 50 Insurance Company.
This was super informative and pushed me to think about data in a less science-oriented perspective. Being able to be communicative with data will be key to my development, so this is a huge takeaway.
Literally perfect! Easily the best session I’ve had in my career. Info was relatable fun but most importantly actionable. I’m giddy with excitement about what I’ll be able to accomplish with my new skills
Perhaps the best guest lecturer I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to. Got the point across in a straightforward way that sticks.
Very engaging and informative! Love the simplicity of slides.
Brad’s ability to cut through the noise and deliver a compelling data-driven story (without information overload) is outstanding. His ‘Rethinking Data’ course is a refreshing take on how we present data, and highly engaging. This course has equipped me with several practical techniques to help me really focus on the ‘action and decisions’ component of data analysis. Brad has delivered one of the best training sessions I’ve had. His enthusiasm for telling a great story with tangible insights from the data is inspiring. (National Account Manager, Fortune 100 Consumer Packaged Goods Company)
The 10 principles Brad share [sic] were amazing, this is truly a [sic] transformational training, I wish more people on [sic] the organization took it.
This is probably one of the most relevant trainings I’ve attended and I hope we can cascade this to more people in the organization.
As Brad walked through the session with my leadership team, the light bulbs were going on and smiles were elicited as the data (and its utility to the managers) was being unveiled. He helped us take data that we see routinely and transform it into meaningful, actionable information that could shape practice. (Chief Nursing Executive, Presence St. Joseph Medical Center)
You’ve probably been asked to be more “data-driven”. But where do you start? Having more data doesn’t necessarily make you a better decision-maker. In fact, excess data may be slowing you down. You don’t need more data; you need the right data.
This workshop provides an overview of how to shift from being data-driven to being decision-driven.
Data-driven organizations focus on numbers. Decision-driven organizations are able to quickly transform data into actions that drive results.
Improve fact-based decision making and actions by
- Understanding and managing the three key biases that inhibit data-driven decision making
- Quickly defining the data needed to make a decision so that you spend more time thinking about what the data is telling you and less time searching for it
- Turning data into actions that drive decision making
- Creating reports that provide answers rather than numbers thus significantly decreasing the time it takes to make a decision
- Creating simple, logical, fact-driven recommendations and presentations that speed up and drive audience decision-making
- Rethinking how we think – Provides an overview of how our brains process data and information. Introduces common thinking and decision making errors/biases and shows how traditional ways of reviewing and presenting data actually contribute to those errors.
- Rethinking communication – Introduces the “Value through Information” model which moves leaders from simply summarizing facts and figures to telling a comprehensive data-driven story. Focuses on building an evidence-based argument that drives decisions and actions.
- Rethinking our approach – Focuses on honing in on the data that is relevant to making a decision. Improves leader efficiency by providing a structured approach to exploring data.
- Rethinking reporting – Introduces Avail Advisor’s “Decision-based reporting” approach. Decision-based reporting organizes information around answers and decisions rather than simply providing a data dump.
Rethinking Data is offered in three formats:
- Rethinking Data Instructor Led Workshop (8 hours)
- Rethinking Data Virtual Workshop (4, 2 hour and 15 minute modules)
- Decision-Driven (2 hour keynote for business leaders)
