Analytics Translator Academy

Bridge the gap between business experience and advanced analytics

Translators can only make an impact by working side-by-side with leadership and applying analytics to their most important business challenges

Our Translator Academy builds a lasting capability inside organizations to translate their most important business challenges to their advanced analytics capability. It comes from our experience in doing it ourselves and is built around three critical building blocks;

Establish a common language and way of working between the business and analytics, to apply the same methodologies when identifying the right questions to ask, and to understand one another’s roles and responsibilities.

Link content to your organizations transformation goals, as well as your unique cultural barriers and skills gaps that exist in your business. We tailor learning journeys to your business and leaders needs, articulating how skills will enable the desired business outcomes.

Activate apprenticeships to help bring our tools and methodology to life, enabling your translators to learn by doing. We deliver our academy through a delivery architecture to reduce disruption to the business, maximise networking and enable immediate implementation of learning.
