Abstract

Business analytics has come a long way. For a few lucky companies, it has become a core source of value creation and differentiation. In many others, however, it still struggles to deliver impact. The reasons for that are many: technical, cultural and organisational barriers are the usual suspects. But talent – in the form of the people who make business analytics a reality – also plays a big part. Future business analytics professionals often focus on developing jazzy but ineffective abilities, falling into pitfalls that prevent them from becoming more relevant – or more strategic – to their companies. In this seminar, we will explore some of those pitfalls and discuss how to try and neutralise them.
