Many innovative businesses and IT organizations appreciate the competitive advantage analytics capabilities can provide and have ambitions to reach increasing levels of analytics maturity. However, the well-documented shortage of analytic talent leaves many firms without a strong analytic talent bench and little knowledge about how and where to find analytics professionals needed to get there.
In this presentation, Greta Roberts will discuss results of a major quantitative Study of the "raw talent" of professional analytics professionals. This Study crossed industries, experience and skills.
Practical insights shared will include: raw talent characteristics businesses are looking for in their analytics professionals, trends and correlations that lend unexpected insight into how organizations are building a strong and scalable analytic talent bench.
Attendees will be provided with the ability to compare themselves to the Analytics Professional benchmark for no fee.
