Understanding Decision-Driven Analytics

If you want to make good decisions with data, start from the decision you need to make and then ask which data you need to make that decision. In this on-demand webinar, MIT SMR authors Bart de Langhe and Stefano Puntoni show how decision-driven data analytics results in better decision-making. They give examples of how data-driven often means answering the wrong question and offer steps for using data in a more effective way.
