I wish I took this course when I was starting my career. I could have avoided several long and confusing presentations . Showing data in a clear and concise way is such a skill to Master.

I enjoyed the course , especially taking it with people from other organizations and functions.

Just note this is a time commitment.


Business Insights with a Smile

I went into the Delta Black Belt Level 1 class not knowing what to expect and feeling quite nervous for what was to come. These worried feelings quickly subsided as Jammie began instructing our class with a calm and fun approach to learning. Jammie made sure to explain and teach thoroughly, as well as pause frequently to ask students if there were any questions. Jammie also pushed students to recall specific items they learned, liked, want to get better at, etc. in order to create conversation amongst the class. I am very thankful to have gotten the opportunity to complete the Black Belt course and have had Jammie as an instructor. I am happy to conclude that although the course felt stressful at points, I learned an abundance of knowledge, tips, and tricks, completing the course with a smile! Thank you, Jammie!

This course supplies you with the tools to not only make many great insights, but the ability to convey them effectively. The instructor was highly engaged and was able to answer all question on all the content covered. Definitely money well spent by my organization.

Day one of Delta training was daunting due to the fact I was walking into class with little to no analytical back bone. As time progressed towards the final exam, I was beginning to identify similarities towards class work and real world work to help hone in and make comparisons that made sense in my mind. Finding the “golden nuggets” in a mess of data, writing a short, brief insight, and creating eye-friendly charts to back the insight up with visuals is now much easier and much more straight forward.

The instructors that enlightened my Delta journey (Sterling and Jammie) over the last 6 months were patient, detail-oriented, and very engaging during a virtual class setting. Given this course was 100% virtual is difficult I am sure to train and keep the class engaged, and both Sterling and Jammie did a fantastic job staying on us as a collective class while also being willing and able to offer constructive criticism when asked.

I feel confident as ever to continue my journey in my professional career development utilizing Delta along the way to set myself apart with the tools and resources learned in Black Belt Level 1.

Class is a great learning experience for keeping the focus on the data that matters most and how to quickly summarize as needed to the intended audience. Jammie (instructor) led the class very well. She was genuine in ensuring the success for each student by 1) staying after the session ended to answer any uncertainties, 2) responding to email questions very promptly and 3) directing us to the site’s excellent follow up exercises. Thank you, Delta Associates.

My course was led by Jammie who has a real passion for data and stories. She did a great job of clarifying key elements and helping us understand why communication can be enhanced by following Delta’s key steps. I started using the Delta framework to grade other people’s insights and it has enabled me to become a better presenter and critic!

This course showed me how to have meaningful and concise insights. And not have the audience do the work to figure out what the charts and bullet points mean. I would recommend this course to any company that has analysts or salespeople who present data. After the first class I could see the difference in my team’s work.

This class was helpful for numerous reasons. It provided a step-by-step process for approaching business questions and breaking down large data sets into smaller, more digestible parts. The class provided Excel tips for creating best-in-class charts and tables. And finally, it provided a formula for providing easy to understand key insights, which I apply to my work nearly every day.

The Delta Black Belt course is a mentally strenuous course, designed to exercise the way your mind thinks about, analyzes, receives and communicates data. This class has changed my overall perception of how data is used and communicated in our every day lives. Jammie was an incredibly patient, knowledgeable and a well-rounded leader, paving the foundation for our own success. Jammie teaches and presents the Delta fundamentals but in order to fully succeed, it was entirely upon myself to put in the work behind the scenes of the course. Overall, I am forever grateful for the way the Delta Black Belt course has changed my personal and career outlook. Hats off to Jammie and the entire Delta team and I look forward to taking other courses in the future.
