Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) August 13, 2015 -- Business Analytics is a hot topic for many organizations. Analytics programs can be a significant differentiator for organizational success when implemented successfully. When done poorly they waste money, time and good will. To help leaders learn about implementing analytics programs, Metcalf & Associates has compiled a series of resources.
The first recommended resource is an interview with Maureen Metcalf and James Brenza talking about drivers of success and failure for high profile analytics programs in an hour long discussion on Voice America leadership radio. The show will air on August 18 at 2 pm EST and is available on demand. James is an Information Technology and analytics leader with 20 years of diversified experience and success in delivering analytical, functionally rich, complex solutions. This interview augments the following resources.
The second resource is the award winning Innovative Leadership Workbook for Implementing Analytics Programs co-authored by Maureen Metcalf and James Brenza. This currently available workbook provides a hands-on toolkit to help leaders guide “big data” and analytic transformations and how you can apply it to solve problems as well as improve sustainable results. In his review of the workbook, Angelo Mazzacco, Chief Information Officer of COPCP, says, “This workbook offers leaders a pragmatic approach and the necessary tools to lead a successful analytics implementation. The combination of leadership building and leading analytics implementation make this a must-use tool when implementing an analytics program.”
The third resource is a seven part blog series focusing on implementing and measuring big data and analytics programs. In this series James walks through the seven steps of program implementation providing practical examples. This series is currently available.
According to The New Know by Thornton May, “The new law of the jungle is: Know and Prosper; not know: Wither and die. You are standing at the hinge of history, a true inflection point; the choice is yours.”
