Training & Certification Program Further Expands Hackett’s “IP as a Service” Offerings
The Hackett Group, Inc. today announced the launch of The Hackett Institute for Enterprise Analytics, a comprehensive training and certification offering designed to enable professionals across the enterprise to improve their mastery of the analytics techniques and tools necessary to effectively analyze, predict and influence business performance.
“Today, most companies today are literally swimming in a sea of data from internal and external sources. Translating all this information into insights is critical for companies to truly understand business performance, identify opportunities and reduce risk,” said The Hackett Group Principal and Practice Leader Jason Balogh.
“The demand for staff with analytical capabilities has grown exponentially in the last few years, well beyond traditional areas like finance,” said Mr. Balogh. Analytics is becoming a critical core competency throughout the enterprise. There’s tremendous need for employees who can identify opportunities to utilize analytics, then frame problems, carry out analyses and present the results to decision-makers. This is the opportunity that The Hackett Group’s Institute for Enterprise Analytics seeks to address.”
Advanced analytics is one of the technology areas expected to see the largest adoption growth over the next two to three years, according to 2017 Key Issues research from The Hackett Group. Only 10 percent of companies in the study reported mainstream adoption of advanced analytics today, with another 28 percent reporting limited adoption. But mainstream adoption is expected to grow by more than 4x in the next two to three years, reaching 42 percent, with another 34 percent of companies achieving limited adoption by that time.
The offerings of Hackett Group’s Institute for Enterprise Analytics will be designed to address the needs of business professionals from a wide range of disciplines, including finance, procurement and supply chain, global business services, manufacturing, sales and marketing and human resources. The curriculum will include insights, performance data, best practices and case histories gleaned from The Hackett Group’s extensive benchmarking, advisory and transformation work with Global 1000 companies. It will also build on The Hackett Group’s extensive knowledge base and practical experience in business analytics. Interactive training offered through an online portal will be supplemented with personal education, live sessions, case study review and testing.
The initial offering of The Hackett Group’s Institute for Enterprise Analytics, will be available in the second quarter of 2017.
It will include an online assessment tool and two courses – “Analytics Foundation” and “Messaging Matters,” leading to a Level 1 Certification. The “Analytics Foundation” course will cover the fundamentals of analysis, including basic analytics principals, definitions, tools and techniques. The “Messaging Matters” course will build on this, helping students learn to utilize business-tested methods and design principles for structuring and communicating analytical results to convey data messages directly and clearly.
The Hackett Group intends to launch two additional courses that will be part of a Level 2 Certification focusing on Data Decisions and Analytic Tools in late 2017. Additional courses covering Analytics Management and Functional and Industry Analytics will follow, offering professionals Diploma and Advanced Diploma certifications.
