Product Description

Restructuring the organizational dynamics of a company seems to be the order of the day. The authors of Analytics at Work, Thomas H. Davenport, Jeanne G. Harris and Robert Morison have made a thorough research on how the decisions are being taken till-date in numerous organizations around the world. The results show that more often than not, they depended on the manager's gut or instincts. They might get a lucky score a few times, which would be relatively lucrative but with no long-term standing. According to the authors, analytics are needed to make effective and efficient decisions.
To delve into the details behind each decision, in quantitative terms and not whims, is what Analytics at Work aims to instil. By using analytics, organizations can steer clear of impending doom and get back on their feet much quicker. The book lists out a how-to guide on using analytics at work. Answering questions such 'What do we mean by analytics?' and 'What kind of questions can analytics answer?', they expand on the importance of analytics and how to make full use of it. with examples from several key corporate executives placed in heavy-load companies like Netflix and Wells Fargo, this book can be seen as training material for new as well older employees.
The authors claim that Analytics at Work is for those looking to improve their position through facts and reasons, instead of wishes and fantasies. Their key element is DELTA, the five=bit structure explaining the essence and advantages of using analytics for everyday business decisions.
Analytics at Work was published by Harvard Business Review Press in 2010 and is available in hardcover.
