I dunno why ... but this cartoon sorta captures a bit of the flavor of a Sean Spicer press conference.

Pierre, that's depressing! I think too pessimistic. Other traditional industries are embracing an innovative and heuristic approach to analytics. Just look at retail and insurance.

Sadly, industry will not swing around to that - maybe within a tech comapny, but not in traditionally non-tech companies (which, more than likely, is being increasingly impacted by technology).

Thanks for sharing the Austin post, and highlighting the hocus-pocus notion that can occur when analytics is too black box in its presentation.  Important to making analytics valuable, not mysterious.

Broadway sometimes those failures yield more insights than the successes.

Right, trial and error. An organization almost needs to embrace an academic approach -- or even pair with a good university and let their students and faculty do the work. The usual approach to biz -- failure is evil!! -- is what allows the data alchemists to sell their pseudo science.

But just as the original alchemists were unsuccessful in turning lead (or anything else) into gold, the fear or underlying concern here is that reliance on magic/pseudo-science undermines the department and ultimately the organization. I'd want a lot of transparency here, and also encourage alot of trial and error to push the methods and the organization forward.

@Jamescon, it could be a bit of both... unless he is cooking his books at the same time....

This is the kind of chart that gets presented at staff meetings. It's either met with a content grumble, or gleeful approval, when in reality its bogus garbage that needs to be reworked!
