What You'll Be Learning

The Decision Science Accelerator is designed to help you at multiple levels:

  • You will learn the essential discipline of adhering to a six stage process for decision science projects. It starts with understanding the problem and ends with developing and deploying a decision tool in the cloud.
  • You will also learn about the critical enablers for any decision science project. Amongst other things, this includes ethics and compliance, digital transformation, project management and data storytelling.

In short, you’ll learn where you belong in the decision science ecosystem and how you can contribute to delivering useful products and services to customers.

At Decision Science Accelerator, we believe that the best decision scientists put people and problems first. They are equal parts problem solver, analyst, innovator and business leader. They know how to operate in cross-functional teams. Most importantly, they are committed to developing transformative solutions that are commercially viable and rapidly scalable.
