The Data Skills for Professionals Program

The Data Skills for Professionals is an integrated program of competency-based workshops designed by Minerra to develop data literacy for business people and managers.


The programme consists of four levels to help participants learn and apply principles and processes to use data to make decisions.


Each of the four levels contain one or many modules that focus on a specific area of competency. The content of the modules is aimed at teaching technology independent skills that can be applied in an organisational context.

Foundations: Essential Data Skills for Professionals

The cornerstone of the Data Skills for Professionals Program is the Essential Data Skills for Professionals course. 


This foundational course provides a practical guide to understand data and use data to answer questions and make decisions.

Participants learn how people make decisions using data, the language of data and how to apply a simple, structured process to answer questions or make decisions with data. 

Participants will also learn to ask business-relevant data questions, obtain relevant data, make sense of the data, draw conclusions supported by data and present results to stakeholders in a way that promotes action.

Participants apply the structured process using real-world problems they select from their workplace.
