Wrote this over two years ago… its still relevant!
When I first came to the Philippines in 2012 to set up an analytics training business I was ahead of my time. No one was really talking about analytics and most people didnt really get what I was trying to do.
I saw a huge opportunity to be at the forefront of a shift in services that would propel the Philippines forward as a place where analytics outsourcing would be successful.
After a few years of doing seminars, speaking engagements and training manily to build awareness, things are really start pick up steam.
Attendance is way up in our public training offerings, I am getting invited to more and more schools and companies are starting to really look for analytics training to both enhance their own decision-making as well as exploring offering analytics as a service.
This goes hand in hand with a memo by CHED (Commission on Higher Education) published two years ago that schools are now trying to figure out how to implement.
I have worked with a few schools already by doing a one day overview of how to meet some of the course objectives outlined in this memo, and now I am looking to expand that to a five day training. Here is what it might look like.
This five day training will need to be eventually expanded into a semester/trimester long class.
Which is precisely what I had in mind when I did my very first Introduction to Analyitics training back in May 2012.
And now that dozens of schools need this, so my tasks keep getting bigger. I couldn’t be happier.
