How to turn data into decisions

Making decisions and taking action is fundamental for CGMA designation holders. The development of a global marketplace with competition from non-traditional sources has and continues to increase the number and frequency of decisions CGMA professionals are required to make on a regular basis. The risk of making a poor decision has never been higher, nor has the number of required applications for analytical tools.
