Venturn’s consultants are active in the maritime and logistics sectors. The service provider itself organises softskill training courses for their employees. In addition, the need arose for training in the field of data-driven work. Venturn asked us to develop a customised data training course.
Together with Venturn, we drew up a programme that matched the needs and level of the consultants. We built the training on the basis of our own Building Blocks model. The programme consisted of 5 parts: in each part we went deeper into a layer in the model.
In part 1 we discussed the topics data collection, data architecture and infrastructure and why it is important to understand how these components work together. This was followed by a training on how your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are related to your organisational goals and where they recur in your data infrastructure.
In the two subsequent trainings we taught the Venturn consultants how to analyse and visualise data. They can use this to recognise, unlock and present data points.
In the last trainings we discussed the applicability of R as a tool for data analysis and how statistics help you to validate what the answer teaches you.
The design of the training courses and the order of the information using our Building Blocks model worked well. The participants now have a clear picture of how data can be used for an organisation.
In all the training courses that were part of the Venturn data course, we referred to the learning objectives of the previous course. In this way the participants were assured of a logical structure.
In every training course we processed assignments that helped the consultants apply the acquired knowledge directly. Through this clear translation of the theory about data-driven working into their daily practice, the training offered a lot of added value for Venturn.
The participants were very enthusiastic and rated the course with an average of 8.
“For some time we felt the need to add a module on working with data to our Young Professionals Programme. In the search for an external trainer, we came into contact with Digital Power. Thanks to the expertise and critical attitude of Digital Power’s consultants, we received more than just the training we had asked for. The result was a pleasant collaboration and a well-founded training module that really matched our vision and goals”.
