Course Description

Data-driven decisions in the business environment yield purposeful, defensible, and insightful effects. Using regression to understand data, professionals also can make decisions to achieve strategic and tactical objectives. While many methods are used to analyze data, regression analysis is the most common and often most useful method.

Effectively applying simple linear and multiple regression analyses in economic, marketing, and other business domains is important for professionals looking to make data-driven decisions. By leveraging regression analysis, professionals can improve outcomes in a variety of areas, including marketing tactics, human resources policies, inventory levels, and staffing forecasts.

Regression analysis is the process of quantifying the strength of relationships between variables in a given situation. Departments in any organization, including Federal, association or commercial, can apply regression analysis to determine what links, relationships, and connections exist between data points and the strength of those relationships. The results from this method help professionals understand data more precisely and enable them to make more impactful, evidence-based decisions.

In this course, attendees will also learn business application examples of regression across human resources, marketing, operations, and finance. Using programs like Excel and SPSS, attendees will learn how to apply regression effectively, regardless of previous experience.

    • Understand simple linear and multiple regression models
    • Interpret standardized and unstandardized regression weights
    • Present motivating scenarios for moderation analysis
    • Practice conducting and interpreting power analyses
    • Write about regression in proposals and reports
