One thing I can guarantee you is that the Delta team has passion. They really LOVE talking about data. And, that might even be an understatement. Their passion for finding truth in data really impacted me. This was evident while I was attending there Delta Business Insights Black Belt Level 1 Course. Needless to say training was challenging and fun.
Why I Love Delta
Nowadays, merely thinking with an analytical mind is not enough. With all the choices of visualization tools, we need to communicate clearly and effectively. This is the beauty of the Delta Associates training programs. Each course is designed to provide you with technical know how but also teaches you to communicate with data.
Here is my personal story. Let’s go back to when I was working for Johnson Controls. At the time I was on the Business Intelligence and Analytics team. I had clearly shown my knack for working with Excel. I’d become that go to guy to fix all the Excel issues. My background in Mechanical Engineering was foundational in needing to use excel to chew through data. I quickly became good at writing macros, complex formulas.
The Delta team was hired to train our Category Management team. We were taught how to critically weed through massive amounts of data to find the most impactful insights. I attended the Business Insights: Black Belt Level 1 Certification. I Felt like this would be a breeze since I already knew a ton about Excel. However, the training went way beyond just clicking the buttons in Excel. I was challenged to review the data more intently. We worked through how to measure performance, and communicate with our data.
For me this was a turning point in my career. I decided that Data and Analytics is for me. That was about the time that I started to dive heavily into Excel Power Query and Power BI. From there the rest was history. Data is now my life. I love working with other individuals who love and value the importance to data.
