“Go for it!  Keys to Embarking on the Path to Game Changing Analytics.”  Keynote presentation by Jaime Fitzgerald, Managing Partner, Fitzgerald Analytics.


Starting a new analytics effort?  Play to win! Join us for a presentation by Jaime Fitzgerald , data monetization advisor and author, on keys to launching successful analytics projects.  Fitzgerald helps companies to design, launch, and build high-impact analytics initiatives, using methods that help technologists, data professionals, and non-technical staff to align their activities for optimal results. 
Themes of the presentation will include:
Overcoming Challenges to Achieving Game-Changing Results: Successful analytics programs have transformed entire businesses, teams, and careers.  Yet while successful analytics efforts are game changing, most analytics efforts don’t achieve their full potential. According to Fitzgerald, “It doesn’t have to be this way.”  Drawing on his experience helping launch analytics programs, he argues that “by setting themselves up for success, analytics teams increase their probability of success by orders of magnitude.” 
Setting up for Success: What distinguishes high-impact analytics efforts from less successful ones?  High performing analytics teams approach their work in unique and better ways, Fitzgerald will share best practices in making sure your analytics projects are successful, including better ways to answer crucial questions such as:

  • Where are the biggest opportunities to profit from analytics? What business problems need solutions? What questions need to be answered?
  • What are the best ways to estimate the profit impact of analytics projects and to measure results post implementation
  • Keys to defining the required funding, talent, technology, training, and organizational processes to run successful analytics projects and teams
  • Project management best practices that minimize risk, waste, and unexpected pitfalls
  • Longer term success:  keys to maintaining and leveraging initial success to build sustainable analytics capabilities that payoff year after year
