PMETs with such data analytics skills will be able to :
- "stay relevant to value add to their organisation in the current technology and data driven economy;
- to progress in their careers and at the same time strengthen the Singapore Core."
Benefits of taking these courses:

from 2 days to under half a day. My superior is also impressed with the improved accuracy and presentation, my team are more motivated now.”

“We are now regarded as the authority when it comes to numbers.”
Johnny Teo, Finance Manager
5. Big systems performance without the cost
“We had big plans that required a big system, until we attended this course, all these are now made possible. It is no longer just a dream! And it does not cost millions of dollars to invest in sophisticated systems. The knowledge gained is invaluable"
Victor Evans, FD, Healthcare
6. Interactive reporting with drill down
“Instead of giving management tonnes of numbers and tables to read previously, the interactive charts and visuals make report reading a joy rather than a chore. Management is able to obtain prior months/quarters figures with a click of a button.”
Phyllis Chin, FP&A
7. 90% file size reduction
“I was already using Excel extensively before the course and my biggest file was 30MB. I was skeptical as everything seemed so simple, but the thinking behind this course is amazing! I was convinced that I can achieve equal if not more powerful results with simple functions. Now that same file is only 3MB, faster, nicer and the management loves it.”
David Miller, Head of Business IT
