Risk and innovation

Your last point about experimentation/innovation and developing more trust and risk tolerance is a good one, Ariella. Unfortunately, it's at odds with what CXOs and directors are charged with doing, which is to reduce risk or build a safety net that allows them to assume greater risk in their lines of business. Most executives will push away that challenge... "too risky."

@kq4ym Indded, but the people managing the campaigns should know better than to trust polls. That's something I already mentioned in the comments on Tricia Aanderud's blog, "The Election Aftermath: Is Data Dead?"

At least, we can say the data indicates there will be some turkeys that may survive being served at Thanksgiving tables. But, our recent experience surely is going to lead to some untrusting of lots of data and analytic studies. One experience that defies our expectations can really lead to a distrust of outcome predictions for the future.

<<sigh> That will teach them to enlarge their sample beyond the vegan community.>

LOL @Terry! Ah, yes, lasagna seems to rank as the official vegetarian alternative to turkey.

Sorry, Maryam... data's actually having a great year. People, on the other hand, are having a bad year trusting data and those who collect, analyze and interpret it!

@tomsg rather like the unknown unknowns that are challenging to take into account in predictive analytics.

I agree. The trust gaps that are not stated, but somehow acted upon are clearly the most insidious ones.
