Employee Data Literacy – the ability to read, work with, analyze, and argue with data – is key to building and maintaining a data-driven company culture. Data literate employees lead to data fluent teams that demonstrate an enthusiastic appreciation for data and use it as a common language to collaborate, drive results, and make better business decisions.
The Metis course in Data Literacy is designed for non-technical (e.g. marketing, HR, operations) and technical team members who are not data professionals (e.g. engineers and developers). If provided to your organization as a whole, Metis Data Literacy can serve as a strong foundation for the democratization of data and encourages the development of citizen data scientists.
We offer in-person training, as well as remote training via our Live Online technology. We are able to blend these capabilities so we can teach your entire team, even if they’re not all in one place.
