Overview

This course will be available in 2021.

This online, self-paced course is designed to set the stage for application of data analytics and data science to improve cooperative outcomes. As the industry and membership of cooperatives evolves, more data is needed to operate the system reliably and safely. Higher member expectations mean that work processes need to be fine-tuned using data to deliver on those expectations.

This course will take the mystery out of "Big Data" and teach lessons about how co-ops and others use data to make their business decisions better. The content will provide a guiding framework to incorporate a broader use of data into daily cooperative work. Using examples, videos from co-op experts, exercises and knowledge checks, this course provides practical learning on what can be a daunting subject.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Summarize key elements of working with and using data analysis for decisions.
  • Cite examples of where co-ops are using data to enhance service and effectiveness.
  • Articulate the importance and role of data for building business value.
  • Explain how bad data can impact analysis and decisions.
  • Better assess the value of existing data and become a champion for using data more effectively across the co-op enterprise.
  • Link data analysis concepts to developing and improving business processes.
  • Appraise issues and policies regarding data privacy and security.
