Not All Analyses Are Good Analyses

June 24, 2013 | Tim Gardner | HCI

As an engineering student, I participated in the cooperative education program, with many of my work semesters taking place at the NASA Research Center in Cleveland.  It was there I learned the importance of effective data management and in collecting data from a scientific point of view.  Maybe it was the fact that engineers spent a lot of their time setting up FORTRAN programs to do any kind of data analysis, but I learned to think through what I was looking for, because data analysis was expensive and time consuming.

What Will You Do with Your Talent Analytics?

May 13, 2013 | Daniel Fogel | HCI

Michael Schrage completed a great piece on analytics for the Harvard Business Review recently asking the question what do you plan to do with your analytics.  Schrage detailed the efforts of basketball star LeBron James to utilize analytics to improve his skills.  James took a deep dive in the data on his playing, “and an even better and harder look at himself. Then he hired retired NBA legend (Hakeem) Olajuwon — the only player in NBA history to win the MVP, Finals MVP, and Defensive Player of the Year awards in the same season — to help remedy the analytically undeniable flaws and shortcomings of his game. He explicitly linked analytics to his personal/professional transformation.”
