This course has now taken place.

Public sector organisations are increasingly being asked to improve performance, make more effective business decisions and deliver better services. It is therefore essential that professionals are able to understand and utilise effective forecasting and trend analysis techniques, in order to handle these increased pressures.

This Understanding Forecasting and Trends course gives those with a limited understanding of analysing forecasts and trends, the confidence to make more effective decisions, based on data reports.

By attending this Understanding Forecasting and Trends training course: you will gain a very practical overview of common forecasting techniques; the knowledge to utilise basic measures and correlation techniques when predicting trends, and the confidence to apply the right forecasting technique for your organisation.

Through a series of highly practical workshops and use of personal laptops, you will gain the confidence and knowledge to forecast and analyse trends. Leave the day with the ability to make greater sense of your data.

Please can delegates bring their own laptops. The laptops will only need Excel.
