As a Business Executive, you’re always looking to improve your bottom line and to prove your value across the organization. But let’s face it; sometimes it takes too long to get others on board with your ideas and concepts. Resistance to change and ‘turf issues’ are a few reasons you waste so many hours in meetings and working on ‘special project’ teams trying to solve your problems. Don’t Get MAD…Get DATA! In this program, Davy delivers his proven strategies and techniques coupled with inspirational stories that provide the necessary motivation to drive positive change! You measure this, you measure that, and then you benchmark this or that. This is necessary, but far from adequate. When you do not collect data about what you’re doing and how well you’re doing it, you are missing at least 50 percent of the opportunity to improve the quality of your efforts. This session will provide you the knowledge to: 1.) Gather data, identify trends and patterns to help solve business issues 2.) Deal with large volumes of data and make informed decisions based on evidence 3.) Apply and interpret data to support effective decision making 4.) Present data (graphically and numerically) in a way that lends credence to your ideas 5.) Diffuse emotional decision making (the "I think we should" approach) 6.) Sell your ideas and concepts across the organization 7.) Format and present information with clarity and precision 8.) Explain the benefits of your ideas and gain commitment from difficult people 9.) And so much more! Anyone who manages people, processes or technology can benefit from this program. As Edwards Deming, one of the pioneers of the continuous improvement movement said, "Without data, all anyone has is an opinion." All participants receive a comprehensive Action Guide.
