Scotland Data Science & Technology MeetUp: The “Art and Science” of Analytics & Data Science:We should all be like Leonardo
The “Art and Science” of Analytics and Data Science: We should all be like Leonardo
Point of the talk: This is drawn primarily from experiences in the domain of customer insight and customer experience. We think of analytics mainly as a hard ‘science’ but there is a growing importance to consider some more intangible sides to analytics: why do customers think the way they do (e.g. behavioural economics), why do stakeholders make decisions the way they do (e.g. influencing senior decision-makers)?
• What are some areas where the ‘art of analytics’ is often underplayed?
• What are some areas where the ‘science of persuasion’ is often underused?
• How can these be melded in interesting ways?
• Why do many firms fail to do this?
• What could you do about this in your teams / careers?
