Perhaps you’ve been astonished to receive an accurate “personalized recommendation” from an online retailer. Or maybe you’ve heard about how Fitbit has collected the biggest set of heart-rate data ever and medical researchers are now using this data. These kinds of uses of big data and analytics have arrived and it’s more important than ever that L&D and other performance improvement professionals understand what’s happening, why it’s important and what to do about it.

In this presentation, we use case studies to delve into some important concepts, principles, questions and precautions that L&D and performance improvement professionals should be paying attention to.

We’ll cover:

  • What are data science and analytics? 
  • Why are these important? 
  • How are these being used today in general and in L&D, education, and performance improvement projects? 
  • Who are some thought leaders you should be paying attention to? 

Facilitated by:
