    3 Reasons to Use Data Analytics


    Make Sound Business Decisions

    Have you ever made an important business decision based on feelings versus fact? What was the end result?

    Regardless of the outcome, professionals who interpret and apply data make more effective business decisions compared to those who don’t. Data-centered organizations also exhibit higher productivity than those which are not data-centered.

    The informational webinar, “3 Reasons to Use Data Analytics to Make Sound Business Decisions” will provide the business rationale for using data analytics as a way to improve the quality of business decisions.

    Dr. Bay Arinze, Professor of Decision Sciences & MIS, LeBow College of Business, will share data analytics insights, use cases and best practices; and answer questions from the audience.

    What You Will Learn:

    · What data analytics is and how it can lead to improved organizational decision making

    · How learning data analytics can upskill your career

    · How to use data analytics to make sound, strategic business decisions

    · Features and benefits of the data analytics tool, Tableau

    Building a Culture of Originality, Generosity and Resilience

    "One of the world's 25 most influential management thinkers!"

    Adam Grant is Wharton's top-rated professor and a New York Times writer on work and psychology. He has been recognized as one of the world's 25 most influential management thinkers, Fast Company's 100 most creative people in business, the world's 40 best business professors under 40, Fortune's "40 Under 40," HR's most influential international thinkers, and one of Malcolm Gladwell's favorite thinkers.

    Join us at the 11th annual PSPS Leadership Forum on October 10th to hear Adam’s in-depth discussion based on more than a decade of his research and consulting, Adam will address these questions:

    • How can leaders overcome fear and doubt to build cultures that welcome diverse perspectives and honest feedback?

    • Why do late entrants typically beat first movers, friendly managers end up being the least supportive, devil’s advocates often backfire, but contrarian opinions retain value even when they’re wrong?

    • Why are the values that help organizations prosper early on the same ones that thwart their growth later?

    • What are the key strategies for building a culture of productive generosity?

    • What does it take to develop productive interactions, and how can leaders, managers and employees use this understanding to build richer networks, more innovative teams and more rewarding service relationships?

    • How can organizations improve practices around selection and hiring, recognition and rewards to boost revenue, efficiency and satisfaction?

    Grant is the author of two New York Times best-selling books translated into 35 languages. Originals explores how individuals champion new ideas and leaders fight groupthink; it is a #1 national bestseller and one of Amazon's best books of February 2016. Give and Take examines why helping others drives our success, and was named one of the best books of 2013 by Amazon, Apple, the Financial Times and The Wall Street Journal-as well as one of Oprah's Riveting Reads and Harvard Business Review's ideas that shaped management. Grant's third book, Option B with Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, debuts in April (2017) on facing adversity and building resilience.

    Grant's studies have been highlighted in best-selling books such as Quiet by Susan Cain, Drive and To Sell Is Human by Daniel Pink, Thrive by Arianna Huffington, A Path Appears by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, and David and Goliath by Malcolm Gladwell.
