Research Design Mobile Data Collection Mapping And Data Analysis Using NVIVO And SPSS Course

INTRODUCTION

New developments in data science offer a tremendous opportunity to improve decision-making. In the development world, there has been an increase in the number of data gathering initiative such as baseline surveys, Socio-Economic Surveys, Demographic and Health Surveys, Nutrition Surveys, Food Security Surveys, Program Evaluation Surveys, Employees, customers and vendor satisfaction surveys, and opinion polls among others, all intended to provide data for decision making.

It is essential that these efforts go beyond merely generating new insights from data but also to systematically enhance individual human judgment in real development contexts.

How can organizations better manage the process of converting the potential of data science to real development outcomes?  How can organizations go beyond merely generating new insights to changing behaviors — not only of their employees, but beneficiary and communities too?

This ten days hands-on course is tailored to put all these important consideration into perspective.
It is envisioned that upon completion, the participants will be empowered with the necessary skills to produce accurate and cost effective data and reports that are useful and friendly for decision making.

It will be conducted using ODK, GIS, NVIVO and SPSS
