Knowledge, learning and continuous improvement are achieved best when we share. Through my blog thoughts, I will share with you my passion of utilising data analytics to recommend strategic & operational decisions based on financial viability. I will also be waiting to hear your thoughts and experience.

Working in Strategy Development, Financial Management and Analytics Transformation, my blog will focus on 7 key areas:

  1. Strategy – company strategy as well as analytics strategy and best practices.
  2. Analytics Business Partnering – skills needed to play an active part in Analytics Transformation.
  3. Agile Project Management – including financial business case calculation.
  4. Data Manipulation – data engineering, cleansing, automation and robotics.
  5. Data Science – modelling and scenario analysis.
  6. Visualisation – reporting and delivering the message.
  7. Control – ensuring implementation, updates and changes.

In my simplistic view those areas are essential for professionals who successfully utilise data analytics strategically and operationally. Just want to highlight that it is a good thing to have the understanding of these areas but normally the person will be an expert in one or maybe two areas.

Looking forward to our discussions!
