    From large scale analytics projects that have a lifesaving impact, or realize millions of dollars in savings, or transform an entire industry, to those that simply help an organization better utilize its data and improve its day-to-day functionality, how is success measured?

    Joining me for this episode are Pooja Dewan, Vice President and Chief Data Analytics Officer with OTIS Elevator, and Carrie Beam Teaching Associate Professor at the University of Arkansas and Principal of Carrie Beam Consulting.

    Both Pooja and Carrie have played a pivotal role in the Franz Edelman Award competition, which recognizes and rewards outstanding contributions of analytics and O.R. in the for- and nonprofit sectors around the globe. Pooja served as the 2019 and 2020 Competition Chair and Carrie coached the 2019 winning team and will be the 2021 Competition Chair. They both have also served as competition judges on multiple occasions.

    And if you haven't already, be sure to check out the interviews highlighting this year's Edelman Award winning team from Intel as well as the other 2020 finalists, including Carnival Corporation & plc, Walmart, Deutsche Bahn and IBM.
