Analytical Thinking Skills: The Foundation of Data Based Decision Making

The Foundation of Data Based Decision Making

Managers and employees make decisions every day based on personal experience, widely accepted best practices, or even the latest trend in business thinking. And, in many situations, the decisions may be appropriate. But how do you know for sure?


Only 38%
of employees possess strong analytic skills.

- Harvard Business Review


Analytical thinking is the ability to systematically and logically work through an issue. Using analytical thinking, you can focus on using data to make strategic business decisions.

According to a study published in Harvard Business Review, the best decision makers are “informed skeptics” who possess strong analytical skills. However, only 38% of employees fall into this category.

This course will expand your analytical thinking skills and help you make data-driven decisions.

You will learn how to:

  • Follow a systematic process that leads to objective, verifiable conclusions.
  • Focus on and gather the information required to address business issues.
  • Analyze the data you gather by following the principles of logic and reasoning.
  • Communicate your analysis in a relatable and clear manner, including how to create visual aids.
