Sinopsis

What do you need to become a data-driven organization? Far more than having big data or a crack team of unicorn data scientists, it requires establishing an effective, deeply-ingrained data culture. This practical book shows you how true data-drivenness involves processes that require genuine buy-in across your company, from analysts and management to the C-Suite and the board.

Through interviews and examples from data scientists and analytics leaders in a variety of industries, author Carl Anderson explains the analytics value chain you need to adopt when building predictive business models-from data collection and analysis to the insights and leadership that drive concrete actions. You'll learn what works and what doesn't, and why creating a data-driven culture throughout your organization is essential.

Hire analysts with the right skills, and organize them into teams
Examine statistical and visualization tools, and fact-based story-telling methods
