Why to Take This Journey?

Currently, only between 5% and 8% of all companies are data driven. This poses enormous risks and, more importantly, already borders on irresponsibility in terms of jobs, investors and business locations. In global markets with ever-increasing competition, it is crucial to always know exactly what is happening, where and how. Only if you know the absolute, relevant but and above all also the accessible market, you can make the right decisions. Especially Hidden Champions and SMEs need to carefully decide where and for what to invest their money. This course teaches in nine units how, without specific prior knowledge, any executive can move a company from being data-blind to being a sustainable data-driven organization - without external and cost-intense support:

  • Unit 1: Introduction
  • Unit 2: What is Predictive Intelligence?
  • Unit 3: Phase 1: Reactive-Static Business Analytics
  • Unit 4: Phase 2: Proactive-situational business analytics
  • Unit 5: Phase 3: Interactive-dynamic business intelligence
  • Unit 6: Phase 4: Dynamic-modeling predictive intelligence
  • Unit 7: The PI-Tech Stack
  • Unit 8: The PI-HR Stack
  • Unit 9: PI Case Studies and Conclusion

The course is based on the course author's special maturity model for Predictive Intelligence. This model includes four levels:
