Despite recent advances in cloud computing and related technologies, many organizations are still far from where they want and need to be in leveraging data to drive performance improvements. Companies still often apply intuition, rather than hard data, when making strategic and operational decisions. Even when companies define performance metrics, many define vanity as opposed to actionable metrics. Discover new ways to leverage your data to drive shareholder value. In this webinar, you will see how companies are utilizing financial analytics to drive a competitive advantage.
After attending this webinar you will be able to:
Discover how to apply the Lean Analytics Cycle (Metrics > Hypothesis > Experiment > Act) to your business
Learn the difference between vanity and actionable metrics
Practical examples of how actionable metrics can be used to drive change in an enterprise
