This one-day session will prepare analytic practitioners and functional managers to make sense of predictive modeling and take control of the analytic process. We’ll introduce the foundation for data-intensive analytic projects that deliver insight, clarity, confidence, and actionable decision support.
Live demonstrations will illustrate how organizational practitioners can effectively maneuver the natural messiness of advanced analytics. Attendees will realize that true impact with predictive analytics has far more to do with the overall management of a project team and strategic process than with the tactical skills of a data scientist.
