An article on Analytical skills

Essential for your CV and mandatory for most roles with a new employer, you need to demonstrate and articulate your analytical skills both online and in person.

One description of analytical skills might be the ability to visualise, collect information, formulate and analyse, solve complex problems and make sound decisions. These skills are necessary for most work environments to ensure that all problem-solving results in the business functioning smoothly and productivity is maintained at the highest level.

Perhaps the strongest analytical skills are those that involve communication, creativity, research, critical thinking and data analysis.

Having strong analytical skills will mean little if you are unable to communicate with others and explain your position and results. You will need to be able to share the analysis of data along with the results, and you may be asked to present them formally, in writing in a detailed report as well as just explaining them in person. Having good oral and written communication skills will stand you in good stead.

Creativity is important as a problem-solving skill. Thinking outside of the box often results in efficient solutions to major problems. Analysing also requires a creative eye to identify trends in data that others may not see.

Evaluating information and making decisions based on your findings is critical thinking. Critical thinking helps you solve problems for your employer and to have good critical thinking skills means you also have strong analytical skills. All a bonus when it comes to adding achievements to your CV or describing your actions in an interview.

Many career paths involve looking at large amounts of data and looking at the patterns and trends within. Analysing the data is a key skill and goes beyond just examining the data, it needs you to understand what it means and be able to interpret it accordingly.

Finally, research is as important as analysis because without gathering the data or information first, there would be nothing to look at. In researching you can begin to understand what the issues are and what might be solutions. All part of the overall analysis.
