Advanced Analytics: 5 Steps to Becoming an Intelligent Organization

Advanced Analytics: 5 Steps to Becoming an Intelligent Organization
05/24/2018, MSS Staff , in Leadership, Workshops

No other recent trend has created as much buzz as big data and analytics, especially within the C-suite. By analyzing its data in a structured and smart way, an organization becomes “intelligent” and “insight-driven”, giving it a competitive advantage. This workshop, 5 Steps to Becoming an Intelligent Organization, addresses the most common questions and concerns leaders have when considering launching big data and analytics efforts in their organizations, including:

  • Analytics can create new opportunities and disrupt entire industries; but where and how exactly it can create value?
  • What are the building blocks for launching analytics efforts? I need Analytics 101.
  • Is my organization mature enough for analytics? What are the factors to evaluate? Is there a practical way to assess my maturity for analytics?
  • What are the ways to organize an analytics operating model? Which one is the best suited for my organization?
  • What are some common pitfalls on the journey to analytics? How can I avoid detouring and head straight to business values?
  • Is cultivating a data-driven culture in my organization, as embedding analytics, as much about change management as it is about data science?

The workshop will address all these questions, and more, through lecture, case study, discussion, hands-on assessment, structured brainstorming and other creative techniques. It engages the audiences in an immersive learning environment and inspires them to achieve customized action plans for their organizations.

This is a highly interactive and motivating 1.5-day workshop packed with everything you need to know about analytics as a leader; and up to 5 hours of post-workshop follow-up are included. Moreover, it is also a great social opportunity to meet peer leaders in similar situations as you through the included meet-n-greet breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks, and happy hour.
