More than ever before, managers need to make sound decisions based on data. Robust dashboards are important tools in this process. In this course, participants will learn and apply useful formulas, graphing and dashboarding techniques, and data analysis in a wide range of real-world case study examples, such as hospital admissions, enrollment and utilization analysis, and performance dashboards to monitor and evaluate health interventions. Students will have the opportunity to build their own dashboards.
Through self-paced lectures, readings, and individual hands-on practice, participants will complete the course modules as they develop Excel skills, learn which types of graphs are best for displaying various categories of data, and combine these elements into a final project dashboard.
