THE CASE AGAINST QUICK WINS IN PREDICTIVE ANALYTICS PROJECTS
When beginning a new predictive analytics project, the client often mentions the
importance of a “quick win”. It makes sense to think about delivering fast results, in a
limited area, that excites important stakeholders and gains support and funding for more
predictive projects. A great goal. It’s the implementation of the quick win in a predictive
project that can be difficult, says Greta Roberts, CEO of Talent Analytics, Corp.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
In our practice we find that fear strikes the heart whenever the topic of Networking comes
up. Many consultants avoid or even dread it. Why? The answers differ depending on the
consultants, but one thing is consistent; their answers are never good. Typically they range
from “I have no time” to the more accurate “I have no interest in networking”, says Bill
Taylor, President of Corporate Ladders, a business development consulting and coaching firm.
ONE ON ONE WITH CENSEO’S RAJ SHARMA
Censeo Consulting Group CEO and co-founder Raj Sharma takes great pride in the
importance placed on culture. “Most people are good and want to do good things, they want
to be happy, they want to take care of their families and friends. At the end of the day we all
care about the same set of things for the most part,” he says. Consulting caught up with Raj
to talk about how Censeo’s culture creates happy consultants and clients alike.
