About the training course

Focus on how to create and use decision models to provide sound results and real insights for more effective decision making in your organization.

This training is ideal if you have some experience in building models, say with Excel or Analytica, and want to expand your skills. It combines high-level training on key concepts for effective model building with hands-on tutorials and exercises to unlock the power of Analytica.

Our instructors have extensive experience in developing decision-support applications using Analytica. We invite you to bring your own ideas for modeling projects to practice on real-world examples.
