Presentation:
How We Decide: What happens after we show the numbers?
Jed Summerton, Vice President Enterprise Data & Analytics, DaVita Healthcare Partners

 

Abstract
There are probably about as many models for decision making as there are people on the planet. Some decision processes are formalized and taught in business schools; some are made up to fit the situation. Insightful people as far back as Plato have pondered: when it comes to making a decision, how do we decide?
This presentation will cover where “intuition” comes from, and how your knowledge of it (and your knowledge of the audience’s backgrounds) can help you to be more persuasive with your numbers, thus enabling you to deliver more value after analyses are complete.

2:45 – 3:00 pm
