To create a successful analytics program or project to gain forward-looking insight into making business decisions and actions, all of these factors must properly align. The book focuses on developing new insights and understanding business performance based on extensive use of data, statistical and quantitative analysis, explanatory and predictive modeling, and fact-based management as input for human decisions.
