What you'll learn in this business training:

Assess and synthesize information so it's meaningful to you and your business.

Every day new information creates new demands. You're asked to summarize a lengthy report. Your boss distributes a pet project and asks you to come up with a list of recommendations. Important information about a competitor's product has just arrived and you're undecided about how to present the data. You're reading conflicting expert opinions on what's hot and new, and you need to decide which advice to pursue.



How do you assess the credibility of new information? How will knowing this information help you make pivotal decisions? How can you be sure of drawing valid conclusions? This seminar will give you basic analytical tools to assimilate, assess, organize, and analyze new knowledge, so you can use the information to the best advantage of your organization-and your career. You will also experience the qualitative application of these tools through a detailed and interactive case study that explores a common business scenario.
