About the course

If you want your team, organisation or career to thrive, you can no longer afford to make decisions based on reputation or experience alone – you need to ensure that data is in the driving seat when it comes to future planning.

By using behavioural data to understand and manage organizations, has fundamentally changed how companies operate. This Oxford training course will provide participants with a foundation in people analytics through discussion and hands-on exercises with real-world data and tools.

This Oxford training seminar will highlight:

  • People management
  • How behavioural economics can reinvent HR
  • Data-driven people management for improving performance


There are basic questions that have an impact on businesses that no one can answer:

  • How much does the executive team communicate with engineering?
  • Is a manager really spending time with their team?
  • How often should a salesperson speak with a customer?

The reason we can’t answer these questions is a lack of data. Surveys and consultants are useful, but their shortcomings are evident. They’re slow, subjective, and don’t actually measure what happens in the real world.

  • Using real-world data to assess what is really happening
  • Understanding what behavioural data you already have and how to use it
  • Learning basic people analysis methods for HR dynamics
  • HR data-driven for people management and competency assessment
  • How behavioural economics can reinvent HR and make savings
  • Data-driven people management for improving performance

Training Methodology

This Oxford training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes:

  • Interactive case studies specifically designed for the delegates
  • Videos
  • Discussion and evaluation of the latest techniques
  • Hands-on, practical exercises simulating actual project scenarios
  • Pre - & Post Course Assessments

Organisational Impact

Managers who have learnt to lead, manage and plan using data-driven methods will have new and better ways of performing their key leadership functions. They will offer increased decision-making, innovation, flexibility and confidence. They are better able to stand back from the everyday detail and focus on real-world organisational needs, secure in the knowledge that their actions and decisions are based on sound data.

Personal Impact

Participants will be exposed to a range of different approaches to leadership and management practice using data and the latest thinking. This will allow them to grow their business skills and ability in challenging situations. The opportunity to experiment with new management techniques before applying them in the workplace will help build the confidence to move beyond traditional assumptions about the ‘right’ way to manage and lead.
