Analysis Training

Objective


The purpose of this course is to train analysts with a comprehensive, objective and strategic vision, that can transform isolated, scattered, decontextualized and / or seemingly useless data, into valuable information for public and private organizations.This class is targeted specifically for those individuals within their institutions who make critical decisions in a complex and constantly changing environment.

Description


The curriculum of this course is focused on addressing analysis as an integral discipline, based on four areas of study:

  • First, the analyst is introduced to the doctrine and values of the analysis discipline.

  • The next unit focuses on Technical and Quantitative Analysis, that is, technical and mathematical, statistical, probabilistic and computational methods for quantitative data analysis and generate models and valuable inferences.

  • The third unit, refers to the techniques and methods of Qualitative Analysis, so that the analyst has the tools to arrange, organize, relate, visualize and draw relevant conclusions from various data to facilitate decision making.

  • The last unit covers the methodology for developing strategic foresight, so that the analysis concludes with the formulation of probable scenarios with strong inferences that help visualize the future of the organizations, anticipating the course of action that has to be executed.
Specialization on Criminal Intelligence Analysis

Objective


This specialization is designed so that the analyst, using the specific methodology of criminal intelligence analysis, can become a strategic entity within the security and law enforcement institutions for decision-making and policy-making in prevention and fighting crime and for solving criminal investigations.

Description


The Specialization on Criminal Intelligence Analysis also has a holistic approach, based on 5 areas of study:

  • The first one introduces the analyst to the concepts, origin and development of Criminal Intelligence Analysis.

  • The second unit is a complete immersion in the intelligence cycle and the analyst's role in different processes.

  • The third unit focuses on the management and processes of the Crime Analysis Units, which is a new but central figure within security and law enforcement institutions.

Prospective Analysis Training

Objective


The training will provide valuable and practical methods aimed to define and implement long-term strategic planning. By exploring a combination of methodologies, the course work will focus on the various inputs and variables of decision-making that influence the direction of an organization or event in order to achieve the desired result.

Description


This training will propose strategies that procedure change and guidance in an organization as well as provide practical tools to reduce uncertainty and knowledge of the environment in which it operates.

The following is a brief outline of each of the four units:

  • The first unit serves as an introduction to the origins and applications of strategic foresight in both the private and public sectors.

  • The following unit will focus on methods of approaching the future through statistical analysis and qualitative methods for prospective.

  • The third is a practical unit with the objective of applying the analysis of an environment, mapping the actors and focusing on individual objectives. The module will use a case study for its development.

  • The last unit will explore the strategic structure and decisions taken with the purpose of modifying the necessary variables to start the development of the desired scenario. Also included is the development of necessary indicators for monitoring the success of the project.
