Understand your Data 

The somewhat unbeaten path of Data-driven Business is paved with burning challenges. We have to face questions that never arose before and take the risk of failing several times, before we start to get things right. New technical issues arise and the pressure to learn, explore and innovate increases. 

But the prize we gain is worth it. In fact, in the case of most industries, starting the journey is the only possible option to stay in the game. Understanding our data assets generates increasing profits, enhanced customer value, more satisfactory user experience, greater product design and a nice amount of cash at the end of the day.

What you can gain from the journey

  • Future-proof knowledge about the Big Data world
  • Hands-on practices of Data-driven Organizations
  • Insights from data professionals
  • Connections to experts with remarkable results in the field of data-driven business (researchers, thought leaders, entrepreneurs and leaders)
  • Membership of the community of open minded, creative leaders from all over the world 

Mindset, insights and practice 

We have three aims with our Data-driven Leadership program.

  1. To help you embrace the data-driven mindset. 
  2. To give your hands-on tools to shift towards data-driven operations. 
  3. To share our experiences on how to create a data-driven culture within your organization. 

We work with an international team of faculty and mentors with significant track record in their fields. 

The learning experience

The education program is designed in two two-day long intensive courses. The time between training events provide an opportunity to try the new methodologies in practice and formulate new questions.

Members of our international team of faculty and mentors hold significant track record in their fields.

Each of our trainings are held in different countries to offer an intercultural perspective. We work with 30% local and 70% global faculty members. A good mix of global practices and local insights give a unique flavor to our courses.

I got answers how to channel a network or an organization to a direction that responds to changes in the most effective way.

It is a very, very intense program. My overall impression was that everyone should take part in things like this, everyone should develop themselves in these topics and listen to these lectures.

Éva Oravecz

Business Unit Director, K Creation and Production

What we experience seems to be a technological revolution but this program confirmed that the change starts with people. We have to change, improve, expand human knowledge and attitude in order to be able to utilize technological knowledge.
