The use of accurate quantitative information to make an informed decision is lacking in this part of the world. Most times companies based their decisions on mere accounting records without giving the records proper scientific processing and interpretation. Relying so much on accounting ratios for taking decisions have been on the increase. This course will look at other ways of processing data for taking well informed decisions. It is a known fact that if one bases his decision on wrong data, the result of the decision will also be wrong. This workshop will address all these areas.
