Venturn Data Science (VDS) Programme

We have launched a new transformational Data Science Programme which we developed with our partners to bring data to life for the maritime and logistics sector. The first programme commenced in January 2017 with a full class of future data consultants. The programme has been renewed for 2018.

The unique programme features 20 hands-on course days delivered over six months enabling attendees to generate business value after each module with cutting edge, yet practical concepts, ideas, and tools with which to build and strengthen data programmes in their own working environments.

“This programme will create pioneers in the field of data science who can discover business improvements and identify break-through opportunities.”

Patrick van de Ven
Founding Partner of Venturn

The six-month programme delivered on a part-time basis includes an initial five-day crash course followed by in-depth training modules. Subjects that are taught are machine learning, visualization, optimisation, reporting and the use of relational database management systems for these methods. The programme also offers inspirational workshops, team building projects and field trips.

For more information check out our VDS flyer and programme details.

Terminal Excellence

One of our top trainings is our unique Terminal Excellence business simulation.Terminal Excellence is a multiple-day real time business simulation, where participants are exposed to the various dynamics of an operating container terminal. At some point, organisations reach a size where colleagues do not know each other and departments do not understand the key drivers in other departments. People can lose not only the overview of what their own role is in the bigger picture, but also the role of their colleagues. Terminal Excellence tackles all of these issues and many more scenarios. A world of difference is created in just a few days time.

Throughout the game participants will place themselves in various management functions and learn terminal operations from that perspective. By doing this they get a thorough understanding of the critical success factors such as productivity, safety, labour relations and most important, profit optimisation. As new management, the teams challenge is to transform the terminal into a true and sustainable success.
