Predictive Analytics assists the achievement of business objectives; a Predictive Analytics Strategy indicates what business objectives will be achieved through Predictive Analytics, how they will be achieved, and how the business benefit will be measured. Many organisations are in need of a strategy for Predictive Analytics, and Tom will address this need in two ways: by listing and organising the elements which make up such a strategy, and by outlining the activities needed to develop such a strategy in a specific business situation. Also including pitfalls in Predictive Analytics Strategy, using examples from commercial and government organisations.
