Serious Play for Predictive Analytics: What Works, What Doesn't and Why
Duration: One Day Course OR Two or Three Day Workshop
This one-day session will prepare analytics practitioners and functional managers to make sense of predictive modeling and take control of the analytics process. We’ll introduce the foundation for data-intensive analytics projects that deliver insight, clarity, confidence, and actionable decision support.

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.
