CCON 017 Pricing Tools and Techniques Credential
This credential provides a survey of various pricing tools and techniques available to the workforce to analyze contract proposals. This credential begins with an introductory video, followed by two Coursera guided projects. In the first guided project, the student will learn the basics of using Power BI Desktop software by analyzing data on credit card defaults. In the second guided project, students will learn the basics of using Tableau Public software to visualize Citibike Trips Dataset. By the end of this project, you will have created a few visualizations and a collection of visualizations called a dashboard. Both of these projects simply introduce the student to these data visualization products; if more detailed training is desired, the student can then enroll in CCON 016, Excel for Data Analytics and Visualization. Students will also attend a Virtual Instructor Led course on Advanced Proposal Modeling using Excel.
