There's been a rise in the amount of information gathering effort, for example, Health Surveys, Demographic, Socio-Economic, and baseline surveys, Employees, clients and also seller pleasure surveys, as well as opinion polls, everything meant to provide information during decision making.

It's crucial that these initiatives go beyond just producing brand new information from data but ​to improve human judgment on actual development contexts. Just how can businesses better handle the method of transforming the possibility of information science to positive development outcomes .​The course is customized to place all of this significant factor into perspective. ​After completing the training on research design and data analysis using NVIVO and SPSS , the participants will have the needed skills to create accurate, reliable, and cost-effective data and accounts which are friendly and useful during decision making.

NVIVO, ODK, SPSS and GIS will be used.

​Duration: 10 Days
