Publisher's Summary

For years, organizations have struggled to make sense out of their data. IT projects designed to provide employees with dashboards, KPIs, and business-intelligence tools often take a year or more to reach the finish line...if they get there at all. This has always been a problem.

Today, though, it's downright unacceptable. The world changes faster than ever. Speed has never been more important. By adhering to antiquated methods, firms lose the ability to see nascent trends - and act upon them until it's too late.

But what if the process of turning raw data into meaningful insights didn't have to be so painful, time-consuming, and frustrating? What if there were a better way to do analytics? Fortunately, you're in luck....

Analytics: The Agile Way demonstrates how progressive organizations such as Google, Nextdoor, and others approach analytics in a fundamentally different way. They are applying the same Agile techniques that software developers have employed for years. They have replaced large batches in favor of smaller ones...and their results will astonish you.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Excellent resource for Agile Analytics projects!

Phil Simon masterfully captures the spirit of Agile and how it applies to Business Intelligence and Analytics projects. He points out that business participation and data ownership are an integral part of Analytics project's success as well as gives practical examples that drive home his points. Not only that, but he also delivers the notion that analytics does not stop and that the culture of asking questions and using analytics to drive decision making is the only hope for analytics in a particular company. Highly recommended to leaders and members of projects and companies that aim to make a change via analytics.
