We live in a world obsessed with data, we rely on it for all aspects of our lives. But not all data is created equal. Sometimes it can be deceiving and contain unknown biases that will significantly affect interpretation and application.
The IPA has decided to temporarily suspend fees for its entire suite of courses, qualifications and exams for IPA member agencies, their employees and IPA personal members until 2 October 2020. Please ensure you familiarise yourself with our COVID-19 Free Learning Scheme Terms and Conditions before making your booking.
Too often we fail to hold data providers to account by blindly trusting what we are told. While, at the same time, undervaluing our own industry’s gold standard currency data.
We will provide the knowledge and skills to question providers on the provenance of their data, to understand how to spot bogus or unrepresentative data and how to develop a healthy level of data scepticism.
We will highlight and explain some of the commonest interpretation mistakes so they can be avoided.
Anyone who deals with data on a regular basis and wants to increase their confidence to ask providers the right questions and ensure all datasets used by an agency are trusted.
