It only takes something unexpected to spark a chain reaction that ripples across a process that can re-shape capabilities, finances, and timelines. This course introduces learners “to statistical modeling and data analytics to measure the different drivers of value creation and appreciate how companies should make decisions in the real world.” In the end, students will be able to measure risk and develop a clear valuation of a project.
