Training is split into 3 key themes:
Improving decision-making practice
providing system leaders with practical tools & techniques for making better, more analytically-informed decisions
Strengthening analytical capability
building technical skills to undertake high-quality strategic analysis
Developing analytical leaders
fostering the skills analysts need to work more closely and effectively with decision-makers
Training and events are delivered through structured development programmes, short courses and a series of events – including INSIGHT, our annual festival of learning and sharing – see the INSIGHT 2022 recordings here (and see last year’s recordings here).
We also share information on a range of topics in the fortnightly Midlands Analyst Network Huddles – click here to request to join the Midlands Analyst Network – we welcome new members!
