STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 823 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Prescriptive Analytics improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 823 standard requirements:
- Will the existing paradigm work (broader and deeper analysis) or will we need a new paradigm (think completely differently)?
- If the data are distributed into multiple nodes and the program is split into pieces, how can we architect the whole system?
- How many Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), also known as metrics, measures, or facts, does your organization make available in BI?
- Is it a good idea to follow a hierarchy of descriptive and predictive analytics before applying prescriptive analytics?
- Not all analytic models are compatible with the Map/Reduce paradigm. How do we use big data to inform such models?
- For the Technical Staff training, how many technical staff are expected to attend and will it be in one session?
- Can we separate people who cancel with adequate warning from those who cancel with less than a 2-hour notice?
- How do I most effectively impact the customers satisfaction level and create a successful retention action?
- Does the problem require a Rational/Analytical Approach or does it require a Flexible/Spontaneous Approach?
- What are possible ways to report actionable information in real time to the concerned users of the system?
