CMA members, professional accountants in management and the broader accounting and business community are invited to participate in this valuable learning opportunity.
The webinar, entitled From Data to Decisions, is designed to help participants master a proven five-step approach for using information to make intelligent business decisions. Led by Bernard Marr, CEO of U.K.-based Advanced Performance Institute, participants will also learn how to:
- Define their organization's information requirements.
- Collect relevant data that meets their organization's information needs.
- Analyze and extract data, and transform it into meaningful recommendations.
- Present the right insights to inform and influence decision-makers.
- Make evidence-based decisions.

According to Marr, less than 10 per cent of the information gathered within companies supports meaningful decision-making. In this upcoming webinar, Marr will walk participants through his process for collecting the information that counts.
The webinar will also feature Jean Kimpton, CMA, Controller for the Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning, Government of Prince Edward Island, and Todd Scaletta, FCMA, Vice President of Research and Innovation, CMA Canada.
