Demand for Analytics

Your Time is Now

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few years, you know the sheer volume of data and the ever-increasingly sophisticated ways of analyzing that data have been on a steep rise. Businesses are facing the real challenge of how to make sense of and decisions based on this vast amount of information. Gone are the days when gut feel was sufficient to convince the organization of the need for change.

In today's business, data is the ultimate arbitor of organizational truths.

This situation could be daunting, but it also presents a tremendous opportunity for those bold enough to accept the challenge. The demand for leaders who can analyze data and - ultimately, make strategic decisions based on it - is increasing at a record pace. More than 1.5 million managers are needed in the U.S. alone according to McKinsey.
