In this live webinar, the speakers will present findings from the recent global study they co-authored, "From Value to Vision: Reimagining the Possible with Data Analytics." In their study, they identified leaders of the analytics revolution they call "Analytical Innovators." These companies share a distinctive orientation toward data and analytics that includes three key characteristics: a widely shared belief that data is a core asset; more effective use of more data for faster results; and support for analytics by senior managers who embrace new ideas and are willing to shift power and resources to those who make data-driven decisions.
The webinar will provide an in-depth look at Analytical Innovators. You'll get tips on:
- Engendering the beliefs, practices, and outcomes characteristic of Analytical Innovators
- Enabling the success factors required to excel in today’s analytics revolution
- Creating a framework that shows how your company -- regardless of analytical sophistication -- can become more like Analytical Innovators
- Succeeding in action, with examples from Kaiser Permanente, Netflix, eBay, PepsiCo, and other leaders in analytics and big-data
