Training & Workshops

Training

Training is an integral piece of every ADVIZOR solution implementation we do.

Initial training in the use of ADVIZOR is divided into two parts, Part 1 for all end users and Part II for authors, those users will be modifying existing projects and/or loading new data and building new projects. Training is very hands-on and is typically delivered onsite over a two-day period for optimum learning.

Ongoing training is available in a variety of formats, including free monthly refresher webinars and customized web-based or in-person training to address your specific needs.

Workshops 

Predictive Modeling

In this one-day onsite workshop we work with you and your team to:

  • Provide an overview of the techniques and process behind building a predictive model, including 
    • ​selecting the target,
    • determining the base population,
    • visual discovery to review explanatory factors,
    • adding factors from other tables,
    • building a model,
    • using the model to predict future behavior / primary targets, etc.
  • Build one to two predictive models around a topic(s) of high interest.
  • Use the model to determine causal factors and descriptors of the target and its behavior. 
  • Use the predictive capabilities of the model to "score" a target list, find top priority prospects for a certain ask, calculate expected giving levels, identify risk factors and / or underperformers, etc.

In addition to training, the team will receive output from the model building exercise(s) that should be immediately useful to the team.
