Building a true partnership for sustainable business performance
A real partnership between the ‘business’ and the ‘analysts’ is key to driving our customers’ performance. This partnership can be distilled into 3 fundamental principles:
Clarity of vision for analytics
“Setting yourself up to succeed in Advanced Analytics!”
At the outset, there has to be complete clarity regarding the business case for advanced analytics covering how analytics will improve business performance as a whole and how an analytics capability will be developed over time.
Controlled design and build
“Advanced analytics is no magic”
The development of analytical models and insights needs to be done hand-in-hand with the business in a controlled manner to address a tangible problem/challenge by ‘actioning’ insights.
“Insights driven changes to business processes”
Change enabled by the created insights needs to be truly embedded within the business in a continuous improvement culture.
