ScottMadden Hosts Webinar on Analytics – Gaining Insight through Predictive Analytics
ScottMadden, Inc., a general management consulting firm, recently joined forces with APQC to present a complimentary webinar, “Gaining Insight through Predictive Analytics,” on March 6, 2014.
From trends in analytics to strategies for standing up an analytics function, this 60-minute session, presented by Tina Krebs and Scott Manning, partners at ScottMadden, provided guidance on how organizations can leverage analytics. Key agenda topics included:
What is analytics?
- Key drivers of analytics
- Trends in the use of deploying analytics
- Stages of analytics maturity
- Key factors for establishing or improving an analytics function
- Barriers to success
“Effectively leveraging analytics to drive business decisions is a skillset that many companies are still struggling to find and perfect. We anticipate the prevalence of dedicated analytics organizations will continue to increase as companies continue to investigate the value of predictive analytics,” said Mrs. Krebs.
Big data is increasingly making the list as a key trend. While it’s a hot topic, most companies have not successfully leveraged data for predictive analysis. Most organizations are still focused on siloed, historic data and examining trends versus forward-looking analytics. Especially for corporate and shared services functions, analytics will be a key differentiator and important contributor to an organization’s strategy.
For those who were unable to join, the session replay is available on ScottMadden’s website here.
