Managing analysts

Equip your analysts with the knowledge and the perspective needed to transition smoothly and confidently into management level.

What is it?

This two-day course shows analysts how to adapt to the significant changes in responsibility and mindset when making the transition from a role where they are measured on technical ability to one where they will need to deliver through others. The course provides guidance on how to avoid common transitionary pitfalls, such as staying involved in the detail and micro-managing individuals.

Who is it for?

This course is suitable for anyone working in a role that involves managing people who have technical skillsets. Our participants come from a broad range of disciplines, including business intelligence, customer analytics, data science, pricing, credit risk and IT. Whether managing a team of two or a team of 50, this course is an ideal introduction to people management.
