Data literacy is the ability to read, use, understand, and communicate data as information. At the organisational level, it is the extent to which the organisation, and its members, comprehends and communicates data to drive value. A data-literate workforce will be able to understand, share common knowledge of, and have meaningful conversations about data.
After taking this data literacy course, you'll be able to understand, use, read, and interpret enterprise data consistently and derive trusted insights. Your skills will be manifested in the execution of your role in the organisation.
