Managing Statistical Consulting Projects: Lessons from the Front (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
Beyond having good data and technology, what does it take to deliver analytic success on the ground? Using a framework for managing analytics projects developed from our consulting experience, this tutorial aims to offer statistical professionals practical guidance on the process of evaluating, initiating, and delivering statistical consulting projects. It will draw on case studies from the following topics: starting an analytics conversation-framing the conversation on analytics to improve decisionmaking and drive value; evaluating the current state-prioritizing effort based on systematic assessment against a data and analytics maturity model; planning and organizing analytics projects and programs-analytics project planning and organizational models for multi-disciplinary teams; choosing data, analytics techniques, and enabling technologies-using problem constraints to drive architectural and algorithmic choices; managing delivery of analytics projects and programs-iterative prototyping and communication with stakeholders; and what to watch for-common warning signs and opportunities. The intended audience is anyone undertaking a statistical consulting project starting from the ground up. Prior analytic project management experience is not required, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own case studies and topics for discussion. This course won the Excellence-in-CE Award at JSM 2015.
