Jack will be joined by INFORMS colleagues, Dr. Arnie Greenland, a Professor of Practice at Smith School of Business, and Dr. Erick Wikum, current President of the INFORMS Analytics Society and President of Wikalytics in a conversation about this topic.  This is a great opportunity to learn from respected analytics professionals on a topic of tremendous relevance in the industry. 

By definition, Analytics involves turning Data into Insight to produce Better Decisions. Organizations globally are investing in the people and technology to achieve that goal. With this deep organizational support, the need for more and more “data science” practitioners is growing. The talent pool is cited as a barrier for many. However, currently few organizations are truly reaping the benefit of this promise.  Successes seem to be hit or miss, often leading to frustration. The question asked by many is how can the gap between promise and reality be bridged.


In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to learn why often Analytics may not achieve its potential and what practitioners and leaders can do to increase the probability of success. The webinar will focus on both the front-line practitioner and the analytics leader. In addition, participants will have the chance to learn best practices as well as “yellow flags” to avoid.
