“Before taking this course, my analytics team wasn’t giving me data in the form that I needed to make good decisions. I would pore over their charts and graphs, and slice and dice the data in their tools, but when it came down to actually making a decision, it was often a matter of politics more than anything else. Now I know how to talk to them: in terms of outcomes I wish to achieve and actions I have to choose. ”
