Mission Statement

Data Wise Academy focuses on creating the right foundations to take on your digital transformation

The digital evolution must be supported by your entire organization and can’t rely on a small group of executives or scientists. Furthermore, it must depend on a wide-spread data-driven mindset where people understand the ins and outs of the data supply chain.

Today, academia and conferences don’t prepare the workforce to these new challenges and don’t equip them with a relevant knowledge that connects digital solutions to their business problems. Employees and students learn the big picture, get wowed by digital age factoids and visionary speakers but don’t feel empowered to lead change effectively.

Data Wise Academy training focuses on preparing your human capital to the digital transformation. By mastering the technology components, your employees become inspired architects of tomorrow’s solution and best partners to IT. By becoming data savvy, they break away from any of their current data limitations and dare to harness new information every day. By learning change management, they gain confidence to pivot and become leaders of the transformation. Finally, by designing lean processes, they simplify their daily tasks, save hours per day and can focus on collaboration and innovation which will continuously fuel digital transformation dynamic.

Based on first-hand Silicon Valley experience, supported by a true operation and finance international experience and active high-tech startup management, Data Wise Academy training combines the latest trends with concrete and relevant knowledge and always put people first.

This training is focused on results, and delivers changes and wins in days, not months. It aims at creating enablement and independence for the participants by avoiding any dependency to expensive technology or consulting.

Delivered by Gauthier Vasseur at Stanford University, SciencesPo, and at the Association for Finance Professionals (www.afponline.org) and to corporates around the world (Google, Oracle, Specialized, Beiersdorf, RCI, Crédit Agricole, etc.), this training has received the highest praises from its participants. The training can be delivered at different levels of depth through sessions of 1 hour, ½ day and 1 to 3 days and can include a hands-on workshop to apply learning to participant cases immediately.

Start your digital transformation with an impactful, engaging and entertaining training.

Dr. Vasseur is truly remarkable

Absolutely wonderful class with a passionate professor who demonstrates exemplary instruction and engagement with his students. Dr. Vasseur is truly remarkable and has an extraordinary manner of imparting his knowledge to his students in a concise, unencumbered fashion. Prior to taking his class, I had only limited experience with “big data” and was honestly quite intimidated by it. However, Gauthier quelled my anxieties surrounding the topic and provided me with the confidence needed to become a “Data CEO” in my profession. The combination of lecture materials, guest speaker presentations, and hands-on case studies were crucial in breaking down the barriers to grasping and mastering the language of data and the management thereof. From learning how to manage everything from large-scale business problems to the most granular aspects of transactional systems, this course has made me feel substantially better-equipped to tackle and properly execute my own data projects. I would highly recommend that anyone take this course, especially those who believe data may not be their forté.

This course has been a great eye-opener for me, especially because I have worked on analytics projects not knowing the basics. Now after the class, I only wish if I had taken this class earlier.

Interesting session

I wanted to really thank you for the interesting session that you held for our Winter School a few weeks ago. Before your class, I had written off anything regarding technology and data, as I hadn’t had any experience or contact with any of it and thought that it was not something that I would be interested in. But following your class, I am seriously considering data as a possible career path in the future and am aiming to take as many data-related classes as possible at Columbia as a part of my economics major. Your sessions not only presented a whole new field to many of us in a very approachable manner, but you also gave us plentiful practical advice in terms of business management. Your presentation of data truly changed my opinion of start-ups and many firms that are numbers-based, as I had always been under the impression that jobs in this particular field require being an “excel jockey” as you put it. I feel as though I have taken away much more from your class in a week than many others I have attended on a semester basis. Your teaching style was quite approachable and it was nice to have a professor who was more focused on what we took out of the class than how much we could memorize in a short period of time. I quite honestly spent over an hour talking about your class to my parents afterwards simply because you truly opened my eyes to a field and a life that I had not considered previously, for which I truly want to thank you for.

He is energetic, passionate, funny with great stories to tell to make his points. That made the class – offered after a long day of work – wonderful. So did the amazing guest speakers he brought in from Google, Facebook, Uber who talked about how they managed data at their companies.

A great eye-opening experience. Not only was presentation engaging, well laid out and entertaining it also provided some Valuable insight into practical uses across our company. Colleagues were able to come up with insightful reports during the workshop phase after just a couple of hours. As for myself, ideas started popping into my head about possible uses during the classroom section. Being in charge of a cost centre branch of the organization I looked at it more from a production point of view and how I can grab information beneficial to accurate product costing that our IT department said was not available!! By the end of the workshop, I had a solid framework with which to build upon that will allow easier implementation of historical yields into our product costs. Going forward adding the final monthly production data will allow us to stay current with our yields. Something that hasn’t been done for years!! There is also the thought that this will allow all aspects of our costing to be updated in a quicker and easier fashion from raw material recipes, conversion costs and yields as mentioned above. Thank you, the timing couldn’t have been better as that was one of my goals for this upcoming year!!

I have hands-on experience with the good old RDBMS… So the reading the Slides gave quite a lot of insight. Also, I am familiar with the enhanced neurological impact of Story-based Learning. This class certainly had a lot of stories.

However, I have also read, that hands-on practice after learning is essential to create a long-term memory in the Hippocampus. The exercise at the end, with the Oracle Cloud Visualization tool, was very interesting. But I wish there were more of those. 🙁 These days executives are also asked to have hands-on technical knowledge. So I am sure it would have been relevant to the class…

Gauthier covered almost every aspect of working with data to be a Data CEO. His sharing of rich experience working with data in various industry verticals at all level of organizations is revealing, and a wake-up call for not only to data professionals but also to people serving in management. Even though I have been working in the data science domain for almost 10 years, Gauthier has provided a very comprehensive view of what makes you a Data CEO. The thesis of his class is a value creation with the optimal combination of systems (Technology), process, data and people as four fundamental pillars to be a successful Data CEO. I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to create true value for the organization through finding a nugget in their data. To note that this is not a data mining class!

I appreciate the YBG-IBG statement as it is very true in the real world. People pursuing their own interests vs. organization legacy.

Become a Data CEO was one of the best courses that I had in Stanford Continuing Studies and I will highly recommend it to my colleagues. Gauthier not only gave us an explanation of concepts but also how we could use them through his practical experience, that is one of the best kinds of classes, when we have the opportunity to see theory and practical examples at the same place and how we can use it at our work.

Very interesting hands-on information and cases were taught by Gauthier. He had gone above and beyond (invited some well-known guests speakers) to inform-lecture us with the latest data-driven sources. Recommended!

The presentation was pointing out some of the biggest issues of the way we are using technology and how we are sometimes trapped into habits that keep us embracing the change and the opportunities that go with it. Definitely an experience worth sharing and I think we need more of these refreshments to help us stay the course in our daily work.

The session was really exciting and motivating. I think it woke up the minds of several people, as well as making more reachable this type of projects, not appearing anymore as a monster. I think it also taught us the pragmatism! Many thanks for that important step!

A very interesting training session with Gauthier in France last June, on the topic of becoming data wise and how data should be managed and available for all type of internal customers (operations, executives…).
Being myself a pro-Excel/VBA, I am convinced that Excel will remain a very useful tool for ad hoc demands or reports.

However, standard reports and data have to be managed with more recent and user-friendly solutions (Zoho…), made 2.0 and easily accessible via multiple supports (pc, tab, smartphone). The first step is to work on the raw database to make the needed data available and reliable. Challenge accepted!

A really excellent, well-taught class around Data, it’s important and all of the important facts around it. I deeply appreciated the honest and the clear facts approach of this class that did NOT ride on the hype of certain industries, marketing hype terms. Well done!

Gauthier is extremely knowledgeable. He has been in the trenches and has war stories to tell. He passed on wisdom and stories which will help me in my current and future roles. He knows exactly what he is talking about and is the kind of leader I would love to work for.
On top of that, he is extremely nice and entertaining.

I really enjoyed this class and would love to take another class by Gauthier.

The class gives not only a great refresher but also new and more holistic perspectives on data. I have been dealing with data from various business process/operations point of view and can completely relate with a lot of the examples, anecdotes, and Gauthier’s words of data wisdom. But wait, there is more! Gauthier put together a coherent and simple framework consisting of data, system, people, and process that I think is brilliant.

Excellent! A strongly built curriculum driven by a very skillful teacher. Gauthier found the right balance between the theoretical part and the return of experience (his own or via guest speakers). The entire content captived our attention and time flew. I look forward to the next class Gauthier will teach.

It has been a privilege and pleasure to attend Gauthier’s Stanford class on ‘Becoming a data CEO.’ Gauthier not only teaches technology but brings out the essential human elements required to lead successful data projects. He has a unique ability to distill complex concepts into digestible nuggets delivered in a memorable style. Gauthier’s values of creating a data culture that is inclusive and valuable to an organization resonated with every participant in the class.

Dear All,
The term “Data CEO” is novel, and Mr.Gauthier should have coined it. It is an excellent term and demonstrated the necessary approach throughout the course. There were lots of practical stories that we can relate to data analytics. I liked Canary in the Mining is compared with different data analytics processes. Data CEO is a step ahead of Data Scientist. I wish Datawise Academy and Mr.Gauthier for making me a Data scientist and as a Data CEO in a short span of time.
All the Very Best..
Thank You..
