The Key Ingredients of Impactful Analytics Trainings – Plan Your 2019 Analytics Trainings Now

When I first started conducting analytics trainings in the Philippines back in 2012, I was pretty much the only game in town.

There were very few companies offering any kind of big data management training, the terms data scientist and data storytelling were not part of the lexicon and 90+% of companies operating in the Philippines were pretty much just using MS Excel for their analysis and reporting.

You want to know what has changed in the past six years?

Not much, except that there are now at least a dozen companies offering analytics themed trainings, courses and certifications.

Sure they all sound like they are going to teach you cutting edge techniques to finally get a handle on all your big data, but in the end I keep hearing the same thing… the training I went to didn’t really give me anything I can use.

The training was too abstract, to high level, to dependent on one type of software, etc are the constant feedback I here from executives and managers who have been spending on outside training for their teams.

That plus it’s gotten quite expensive.

Analytics Executive Masterclasses, Big Data Boot Camps, Master’s Degrees in Data Science… they cost a lot when most companies are having to tighten their training budgets.

So the risk of wasting time and money on something that is not really going to move the needle is becoming a problem with all these analytics trainings.

With all the efforts of so many people to “help” the Filipino people level up their organizations analytics talent, you’d think by now we should be really competent when it comes to the use of advanced analytics techniques.

Unfortunately, that is just not been the case. There are definitely some pockets here and there were some world class analytics is happening, but for the most part we have to accept the reality that we have a long way to go to be on the level of Singapore, Viet Nam or China when it comes to analytics.

The one thing that has no changed at all since I started all this back in 2012, is the fact that most companies are still relying mostly on MS Excel for 90+% of their analytics.

Everyone wanted to run before they could walk. They through money at high priced trainings with cool sounding names promising to supercharge your business.

I think it’s time to face the reality, that while a few of our companies can do the big stuff, they are also sucking up all the available talent. It’s really, really hard to build a solid analytics team in your business without breaking the bank.

Unless you do what I do.

Get back to the basics.

Make sure everyone is able to really optimize the use of Excel.

Build a solid foundation in analytics that starts with aligning the data gathers, data managers, analysis builders and data presenters.

Make sure your dats is clean, easy to access, fresh, and shared.

Focus on what’s most important to the business.

Then you add on.

What is Business Analytics? In Most Cases It’s Simply Excel & 3 Bullet Points

Business Analytics refers to the skills, technologies, practices for continuous iterative exploration and investigation of past business performance to gain insight, discover opportunities and/or drive business planning. *https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analytics

The most common form of analytics is business analytics that are generally used by senior leaders and decision-makers to investigate problems, validate assumptions and to guide strategic planning.

Business analysts are therefore the most common type of analyst. If you do a job search on the title analyst, as many as half the posting will likely be business analysts. However, analytics can be used in an almost limitless number of business functions in specific areas like HR, recruitment, marketing, finance, and so on. Each one can have its very own analyst.

I was a business analyst for a large part of my career at Wells Fargo, but even before I had analyst in my title I was heavily involved in business analysis. Why?

Because I know how to use Excel.

It’s amazing how many people are scared of Excel. To many highly educated and successful business leaders across Corporate America, making a pivot table in Excel is like magic.

If you were able to take an honest survey of managers and supervisors across the country (world actually), you would probably be quite surprised by the high percentage who would prefer to find someone else to analyze their data.

That’s one of the biggest reasons business analysts are so prevalent.

Another is time.

I had a boss at one point that grilled into me the philosophy that no matter how much data you have, and how complex the analysis, it’s all worthless if you can’t boil it down to 2–3 bullet points.

That’s all he had time for.

3 Bullet Points!

So being a successful business analyst really require 2 skills; Excel and condensing data into 3 bullet points.

If you can do that, you’ll go far.

I did.

A business needs analysts to make sense of big data, manage the storage of the data, and know when to use which of the 4 types of analytics (descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive). To be effective, analysts need to have business intelligence tools to create data visualizations and build business dashboards.

I will cover all these concepts in more in upcoming my training classes. For a list of training events, please visit www.sonicanalytics.com

I’ll be conducting the following business analytics trainings over the next few months:

· June 5 in Ortigas (Metro Manila, Philippines)

· July 17, in Pleasant Hlll, CA (San Francisco Bay Area, US)

· August 22, in Bonifacio Global City (Metro Manila, Philippines)

· September 4, Rancho Cucamonga (North of Los Angeles, US)

Getting Started With Analytics

The primary people responsible for conducting analytics on the massive amounts of data we have today are analysts.

Analysts are skilled in using various technologies and methodologies to identify, inventory and integrate large amounts of data quickly.

A general definition of an analyst is a person who analyzes or who is skilled in analysis. Analysts examine things carefully and in detail so as to identify causes, key factors, possible results, etc. generally using a process of identifying, inventorying and integrating data. *http://www.dictionary.com/analyst

I often hear that most analysts today feel like they are drowning in a sea of data. They need to know how to take control of their data and analysis to quickly answer business questions and make critical decisions. They want to confidently present results and solutions to their managers, colleagues and clients.

You most likely clicked to this page because you fit the description above. If that is the case, then you made a good decision. 😉

All kidding aside, I have designed a method to help you look at analytics in a way that will make data and analysis easier to understand and conduct. My trainings and published content will also instruct you on how to share data in a more dynamic and influential way.

Analysts have been around a long time, but recent technological advances have both allowed us to produce and capture more data as well as give us the ability to analyze immense data sets quickly. Thus we are amidst a huge boom in the applications of analytics and the need for analytics talent across the globe. Analytics is something just about every business leader is trying to figure out how to use more effectively in their business. To add to our challenge, the demand for good analysts is booming just as fast as the explosion in big data.

As a result, there is a huge shortage of people who are skilled in working with data to answer questions and solve problems. This is why you have seen the number of analyst job postings increasing at an amazing rate. In fact the quickening demand for analytics talent has made it very hard for most businesses to find good analysts.

If you are a business leader, manager, owner, and/or executive are not actively trying to surround yourself with analysts and if you are not infusing an analytics centric culture in your business, you will most likely soon see your business fail.

Keep in mind that analytics is about looking for patterns in data to help answer questions. Most businesses use analytics to help ensure more data-driven decision-making.

The primary people responsible for conducting analytics on the massive amounts of data we have today are analysts. Do you have analysts on your team?

Analysts are skilled in using various technologies and methodologies to identify, inventory and integrate large amounts of data quickly. Are you an analyst yourself?

If you answered yes to either question, but you feel you need more training for yourself or your team, you are not alone.

A business needs analysts to make sense of big data, manage the storage of the data, and know when to use which of the 4 types of analytics (descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive). To be effective, analysts need to have business intelligence tools to create data visualizations and build business dashboards.

I will cover all these concepts in more in upcoming my training classes. The classes are designed specifcally for people new to analytics and for business leaders looking to upgrade the level of analytics in their business.

Moonshot: Unifying the Analytics Ecosystem Across the Philippines

(above image from zazzle.com)

For most of the past five years my efforts to upskill train Filipinos in analytics have been focused on Metro Manila.

A few times a year I’d get a chance to conduct a training, speak at an event or attend a conference outside the National Capitol Region, but for the most part analytics adoption has been slower in the provinces.

That has significantly changed in 2017 and the analytics focus around the provinces is primed to explode is 2018.

As I sit here today in Batangas for the mid week holidays, I can’t help but feel proud for the recent string of partnerships we have been able to build outside the nation’s capitol.

We were just in Cebu twice for a Data Night, a Big Data 101 training and an Analytics Freelancers Meet Up. We followed that up with a Data Night and several speaking engagements and media appliances in General Santos (Gensan to the locals).

Next month we will replicate these events in Davao with the contacts we made in Gensan. In December we will do the same and even add a Train the Analytics Trainer event with a key business partner in Bacolod.

And just yesterday we started laying the ground work for a Data Night and a Big Data 101 training in Iloilo for January.

Our plan for 2018 is to spend one week a month in a different province promoting our analytics advocacy, signing up members for the Analytics Association of the Philippines, conducting trainings with companies like DMAIPH, Cirrolytix, BagoSphere, and Spectres Solutions, using co-working spaces like A Space, the Mabuhay I.T. Park and Dream Space, and working with schools like the University of Mindanao and ACLC Davao.

At the same time we are building upskill training relationships back in Manila with companies like Wells Fargo, Accenture and Emerson, teaching analytics at schools like College of St. Benilde, University of Asia & Pacific, Enderun College and the University of the Philippines just to name a few.

We are also orchestrating the OJT experiences for students from schools like UST, De La Salle, Ateneo, Informatics, and URS in Rizal. Again, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Simultaneously, we are building relationships with influential organizations like IBPAP, CCAP, PSIA, Young Engineers and HIMS to give talks on analytics followed up with upskill training for their members.

And last but not least we are having conversations with provincial LGUs, with central government entities like CHED, DeptEd and TESDA as well as with key members of the Senate to promote the large scale adoption of analytics across the Philippines to keep our workforce competitive in the increasingly data driven world.

I could go on and list more. The names above are just a sample.

When you set out to facilitate the upskill training of half a million people, you have to think big. And thing big is what we do.

That’s our moonshot.

Putting a man on the moon took a national effort from all parts of society to build a space age ecosystem capable of the previously unthinkable.

Data Science and Big Data Analytics For Finance

Was recently asked to do a one hour talk on data science and big data analytics for Finance… so I created A Step By Step Process To Get More Value Out Of Your Finance and Accounting Data.

To get started, we will discuss at a high level what is analytics, big data and data science and how it can be used in Finance and Accounting to get more value out of all the numbers you have in your business.

Per Deloitte, “In today’s highly competitive business environment, companies need more from Finance than accurate financial statements and reports. They need forward-looking, predictive insights that can help shape tomorrow’s business strategy and improve day-to-day decision-making in real time. “

New IT applications and infrastructure such as big data technologies, predictive analytics, as well as modern mathematical methods are opening up new possibilities for gathering and processing large amounts of data and opportunities for generating value.

They keys to a sound data science and analytics approach to Finance include the following:

  • A Process for Using Big Data to Answer Business Questions
  • A Well Mapped Data Lake of all the Data Finance Needs
  • The Right Mix of Analytics Talent, Technique and Technology
  • A Top Down Embrace of an Analytics Centric Culture

By translating data into insights around financial statements and operations, the finance team can unlock and create new value. Being able to identify unrealized and often unexpected potential as well as quickly and decisively mitigating risk, data science and analytics can take your team to a new level of insight and performance.

This in turn supports the finance function to make better decisions by being able to understand what has happened and why, and then predict what may happen next. The end result is a strategy built on data and one with a much higher rate of success then ones based on intuition or gut feel.

Help Me Pick an HR Analytics Topic…

I need your help. I am submitting a proposal to speak at an upcoming HR event being put on by my good friends at Ariva and need help determining which one sounds like the most interesting topic.

Option 1: Insightful HR: Integrating Quality Data towards Better Decisions

Most HR teams are surrounded by an almost limitless wealth of information locked inside business data. However, very few HR teams are consistently able to identify the right data at the right time and even fewer are able to integrate high quality data into the strategic decision-making process. The keys to data-driven decision-making are finding the right balance of analytics Talent, Technique and Technology. I will share a few of tips on how to align the 3 T’s in your business so that HR is able to empower data-driven decision making across the organization. For most HR teams, having good data is the easy part, distilling actionable insights is what makes all the difference

Learning Session Outline:

  1. Learn how to Identify the right data
  2. Discuss how to Inventory the data to gain actionable insights
  3. Discover how to Integrate the data insights into HR decision-making
  4. Unlock the analytics Talent needed for cutting edge HR Analytics
  5. Reveal key analytics Techniques to analyze the data
  6. Master the appropriate analytics Technology to optimize HR decision-making

 

Option 2: Driving Workforce Performance using Balanced Score Card Metrics and Analytics

Balanced Score Cards have been around since the 1990’s. HR teams across the globe have spent millions in trying to perfect ways to positively drive workforce performance based on metrics. So why is this still a topic of interest? Well, in most cases, it is because score cards and the metrics they report keep pointing us problems that are just not going away. Rising attrition, rampant job-hopping, and lower productivity are challenges we are all dealing with. In many cases, though the problem is not what we are reporting with our scorecards but the data we are populating them. As a whole, we are relying on metrics of the past to describe to us how we got here. What we need though is metrics of the future that accurately predict where we are going. I will share with you several of the metrics of the future I use for workforce reporting in my business and how we employ Predictive HR Analytics to optimize our scorecards.

Learning Session Outline:

  1. Discuss HR Metrics of the Past
  2. Learn about HR Metrics of the Future
  3. Discover how to use HR Predictive Analytics
  4. Design a Data-Driven Scorecard Template

 

Option 3: Strategic Problem-solving for Better Decision-making: Analytical and Critical Thinking in Motion

One of the biggest strategic challenges facing HR teams is transforming Big Data into actionable insights. The speed in which decision-makers need to act can often preclude the deep understanding of what value actual lies in the data. This causes misguided strategic planning and under informed decision-making across an organization. The best strategic solutions to quicker and more accurate decisions are found in a well rounded HR analytics approach. One that empowers critical thinking not just from the top, but down the ranks. Business Dashboards and Data Storytelling are two tools that should be used to quickly enable quick decisions in real time. I will show you how HR teams are able to keep one eye on strategic problem-solving while still taking care of daily challenges as they pop up.

Learning Session Outline:

  1. Discuss the challenges of HR Big Data
  2. Share HR Strategic Planning best practices
  3. Learn how to get Real Time HR Data
  4. Design HR Tactical Implementations using Analytics
  5. Align HR with Organization-wide Problem-Solving and Decision-Making

Let me know what you think asap!

Thanks!

Analytics in the Philippines 2020

The year 2020 used to sound like it was so far off in the future.

Yet, there it is on the calendar… just a little more then 2.5 years away.

recipes-for-unlocking-value-from-big-data-3-638

2017 is the fifth year of my original five year plan for DMAIPH.

Now I’m starting to think about the next big strategic plan and for this iteration I’m gonna work with a 2.5 year plan. Because things are evolving so quickly when it comes to analytics in the Philippines.

For the rest of 2017 the big goal is to evolve our public and in-house training options with our partners at Ariva Events Management and the Rock Stars of Data.

At the same time we will work in solidifying several key business partnerships with the Analytics Council, APEC Project DARE, BASE (Business Analytics Society of Educators), Data Science Philippines and Global Chamber Manila.

There are so many amazing things happening right now in the Philippines that about a year ago seemed to be distant horizon stuff. Its both amazing and a little scary to think where things might be a year for now. Let alone 5.

17426122_1095825400562902_5936762267508985241_nSo the birth of the 2.5 year strategy plan is here.

By 2017, my goal was to make DMAIPH one of the top names in analytics in the Philippines. Mission accomplished.

By 2020, my goal is to make DMAIPH “the” top name for analytics training in the Philippines.

Come along for the ride!
