This course aims to provide sufficient basic knowledge to analyse data in the best way without making any of the common errors.
The main headings we will cover during the course are described below. Each section will first be explained theoretically, followed by practical exercises using example data (or data that is provided by the customer). We will use Minitab data analysis software to practice the various analysis. Each participant will be provided with a free 30 day trial version of Minitab. Some of the topics will also be illustrated using MS EXCEL.
It is advised that each participant has access to a laptop or desktop PC with Windows 7 or 8.1 installed. We assume they can bring their own laptop.
This course is recommended for all those in an organisation who want to get a good understanding of Data Analysis, the methodology, the main tools and tests and when to use them and when not.
In addition we will spend some time looking at various common errors you must be aware to avoid wrong results.
