What's different about DataLit Leaders?

According to research, only 7.5 per cent of companies face technology-related obstacles when implementing Data and AI initiatives. Instead, it’s cultural issues – such as people and processes – that represent the bulk of the challenge today.

The problem is that most data skills programmes focus on hyped-up tech, like AI or analytics. To address the wider cultural needs of your business you need a more fundamental level of data literacy before you tackle the bigger picture and take action to ensure that data makes an impact across your organisation.

The DataLit Leaders course addresses the fundamentals.

By focusing on fundamental understanding DataLit Leaders helps you differentiate between the hype and the reality, then find the domain of data that will make you more effective in your role. 

DataLit Leaders offers you a chance to apply your unique values and experiences to shape how you want to work with data.

It’s not about turning you into something you’re not. It’s about looking at how data can make an impact on what you already do. It’s about helping you shape your future your way.
