Seminar 6 - Leading Analytics: Building your Analytical Skill set

  • Sep 24, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members



In some cases analytics leaders have to perform the analysis, more often than not they must have experience doing it in the past. In the very least they must understand the basics of statistical analysis. In this series we will teach leaders what they need to know in order to talk intelligently with their data analysts and scientists. Particularly we will cover topics ranging from descriptive, inferential and predictive analytics.



1) Working with an analysis team.2) Knowing enough to ask good questions:

  • Visualizing distributions.
  • Correlation.
  • Linear regression.
  • Hypothesis testing.
  • Estimation.
  • Visualization.

    Always like learning shortcuts in statistics to know how to read the numbers or what tools to apply.

    Sorry can't make it. It would be great if future events can start a little later at 6:30 or 7pm, as people may need some time to get off from work...

      Well, this would help those of us who work outside the city for sure - its very difficult to get into the city by 6 from surrounding towns after finishing work..

      Amen. I know some people who work in the tech firms north of Boston, but simply can't make it due to timing and rush hour traffic getting into Cambridge area...
