Best practices to abound next week in Windy City

Whether you steer strategy from the C-suite or execute operations from your cubical, you can use analytics to transform your organization. 

I have continued to gain greater appreciation for the value of analytics at the many conferences that JMP has participated in this fall, including Predictive Analytics World in New York last week. Next week’s Predictive Analytics Innovation Summit in Chicago will offer more wonderful opportunities to learn from analytics experts and engaged practitioners alike about fresh ways to improve contributions to your organization and improve day-to-day processes. 

If you’re headed to Predictive Analytics Innovation Summit, don’t miss the JMP Analytics Exchange Panel, which will convene the morning of Friday, Nov. 4. Panelists will address some of the successes and challenges they’ve encountered in data-driven decision making. Discussion topics will include:

  • Getting started on the analytic journey.
  • Evaluating the importance of visual presentation in influencing organizational decisions.
  • Getting your analyses more broadly adopted across the organization.
  • Best practices for establishing an analytic center of excellence.
  • Attracting and retaining analytic talent.
  • Overcoming organizational reluctance to an analytic approach.
  • Anne Milley, Senior Director of Analytics Strategy for JMP, will be the moderator, and panelists include:

    • Vicki A. Barbur, PhD, Vice President of Research and Development, Cardinal Health.
    • Bill Kolinger, Senior Vice President Market Information Manager, Bank of America.
    • Dick De Veaux, PhD, Professor of Mathematics and Statistics, Williams College.
    • Mike Cramer, Director of Operations Research, McDonald’s.
