PSPS is delighted to welcome Dr. Ben Waber, Visiting Scientist at MIT Media Labs and CEO of Humanyze, to Philadelphia for our 2Q program at the Inn at Villanova. Dr. Waber literally wrote the book on People Analytics.
The amount of human capital data available to organizations today is increasing by magnitudes never seen before. The ability to harness that data, analyze it and, ethically utilize it will make the difference between being competitive today and irrelevant tomorrow. In his highly engaging presentation, Dr. Waber will provide us with a brief introduction to organizational analytics, show us how leading companies are utilizing this data and share with us the implications for business. We’ll cover hot topics such as gender bias, privacy, complexity of work, and organizational speed. You’ll come away having learned the imperative of moving away from traditional decision-making methods to more rapid-fire ways that keep up with the pace of data driven decision making.
