BA Career Series: Find Problems Before They Occur with Machine Learning and Analytics
In our BA Careers Series we will investigate specialized and complementary careers in business analysis, such as Agile Analyst, Business Relationship Management, Change Management, Product Ownership Analyst, Project Management and others.
We all would love to be more proactive and anticipate problems so that we can take steps to solve them before they occur (if indeed, it is possible to solve a problem before it is one). While there are people who seem to have a knack for predicting, especially problems, few of us have trained with Nostradamus and learned the art of prognostication.
We do have, however, some tools that will provide some direction if not some actual answers. Predictive analytics, diagnostic analytics and prescriptive analytics coupled with machine learning technology can go a long way to predicting problems and suggesting solutions, which in many cases is simply taking actions to avoid the problem in the first place.
This webinar addresses project managers, business analysts and other non-data scientists and non-developers and provides guidance as to how machine learning and analytics can provide some insight into the future of your projects and products provided the right questions are asked. It will also address the issue of asking the right questions.
