Critical Thinking

Critical Thinking Through Data Analysis

Instructors: Dennis Nguyen, Nicole Harris, Devin Lanier, Adrian Ramos and Andrew Bernard

Register Now

Data-driven decision making is essential for doing business at UF. While running a report may give you information, does it provide the necessary perspective that you need to make a solid decision? Applying critical thinking skills to the information you are analyzing is essential for enabling good decisions. The training is organized around 4 areas of financial data:

  • Consistency/Variances
  • Accuracy/Errors
  • Allowability/Compliance
  • Budget/Available Balance

We will define questions to pose about the data and then step you through how to collect, organize, and analyze the information. Collectively, we will discuss potential pitfalls, identify questions the data does not answer, and explore ways to validate your results.

Target Audience

Business Administrators and UF staff who process or manage financial or HR transactions.
