Big Data and Decision-Making
As data becomes increasingly ever-present, companies are struggling to find ways to extract value from it. When it comes to decision-making, should executives begin with the data and use it to determine which opportunities to pursue, and what to focus on? Or should they start with their strategic decisions, and then gather and analyze the data they need to improve their decision-making? And how should they combine “statistical analysis” of big data with human expert judgment? On October 13th, three leading decision professionals will present their perspectives and participate in a panel discussion to shed light on the impact of big data on decision-making.
