Most of the companies these days have large amounts of data available but are unable to use it in a meaningful and profitable way. This is where analytics, a new business tool that is proving to be a game changer, is helping many organizations in exploiting their data with the intention of making informed business decisions and modifying or redesigning processes with astounding results.

In their book, Analytics At Work: Smarter Decisions, Better Results, the authors show how managers can deploy analytics in everyday operations with relative ease. They describe how the various analytical tools available today such as statistical analysis and qualitative measures can aid in making the best possible decision, be it determining of a new product offering that would thrill customers to finding out whether the marketing budget is being used efficiently.

Based on the latest research and accompanied with examples from global companies, the book details a five-step model for a company to deploy and succeed with their analytical projects. The book guides the reader on how to effectively use the data available, manage and coordinate the aspects related to data, people and technology, the recruitment and management of the right analysts and the evaluation and setting of realistic goals for an analytical initiative.
