Topics and areas of expertise:

  • Analytics Strategy and Process -- practical tips and frameworks for getting from "we have a lot of data" to "we are efficiently and effectively using the data;" this material is good for analysts and for marketers -- framed and delivered differently depending on the makeup of the audience.
  • The Data-Driven Enterprise of the Future -- at the same time that the breadth and depth of data available to companies continues to grow exponentially, the processing power and sophistication of the tools for working with that data also continue to evolve. Organizations can no longer follow "a path to analytics maturity;" they have to pursue multiple paths at once and be clear not only on where each path will take them, but when and where those paths need to be planned to intersect.
  • The Evolving Role of the Analyst -- as the breadth and depth of data available to organizations grows, and as the sophistication of analytics tools evolves, the role of the analyst is shifting; I can speak to the past and the future on that front.
  • Communication of Analytics Results
  • Data Visualization
