Workshop aims to improve your essential soft skills

Patrick Noonan

Patrick S. Noonan

In Inc. Magazine, Lou Adler wrote that, “People don’t underperform because they lack technical skills. People underperform because they lack soft skills.” Corporations and institutes of higher education tend to focus on teaching, assessing and maintaining technical skills, which are vital. Are “soft skills” any less important?

The Essential Practice Skills for High-Impact Analytics Projects workshop, part of the INFORMS Continuing Education program, is specifically designed to improve “soft skills” for analytics practitioners.

INFORMS will hold its most popular continuing education workshop in Atlanta on June 20-21 at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School. The two-day, hands-on course was developed by INFORMS and facilitated by Dr. Patrick Noonan, former assistant dean and director of MBA programs at the Goizueta Business School.
