Course overview

Occasionally, your teams will need to be able to use data to make conclusions or predictions for the future. While some methods of data analysis can be helpful in visualizing or understanding data, they don’t necessarily give this kind of insight. So, if conclusions or predictions are what your teams are going for, you need to use the right methods.

Luckily, there are data-analysis techniques that can help. Inferential and predictive data-analysis techniques are extremely useful, but it’s important to know which method to use, when to use it, and how to apply it, to get it right. This course will take your teams through an overview of inferential and predictive data analysis, including some examples of these methods, and how they can be helpful for you and your data.
