Session 3: Putting Together Your Analytics Talent Roster

Ganesh Ramakrishna, Partner, Opex Analytics

This Academy session will help you determine how your company should get started in building out the Analytics skillset required to stay competitive in today’s markets. If you believe most of the articles talking about analytics recruiting today, you would think you need to somehow build a team composed of eleven ‘Tom Bradys’ of the analytics world. In reality though, we find that putting together an analytics team is no different than acting as the GM for any NFL team.

This session will cover the different pieces you need in order to build a successful team and retain and motivate them to be successful. We will provide a collection of observations from building our own team as well as observations from watching and guiding some large enterprises in putting together their own Analytics Teams and/or Centers of Excellence.
