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 Programme of events here! (and see last year’s recordings here). The training programme is grouped into four 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
- Moving beyond the numbers – ensuring decisions are informed by findings from a range of disciplines
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! And see the other communities of practice (CoP) for details of how to get involved with the Knowledge Mobilisation and Evaluation CoPs.
