Overview
Analytics is the identification, interpretation and communication of meaningful patterns in data. Organisations are starting to apply analytics to business data to describe, predict and improve business performance. Inevitably, analytics has started to become an important topic area within the HR community with significant claims for improvement in selection, performance management, talent management, employee engagement and workforce planning, amongst others.

Content
Conferences, consultancy offerings and publications in this area continue to proliferate, coupled with claims for substantial productivity and performance improvement. Closer examination indicates that many of the claims are unfounded and that analytics without the essential preliminary groundwork is likely to lead to meaningless outcomes on issues which are not important. This session is not about analytics for its own sake. We will discuss:
• how to prioritise and what to analyse to get actionable insights
• Alec’s ‘organisational systems approach’ to diagnosing the issues that need to be addressed
• what questions should we be asking and what types of analyses of people and business processes in organisations do we need to apply?
• the methodology which can serve as a key element in any approach to organisation analytics.

Alongside Alec’s session, we will hear the views of experts and practitioners who will provide examples of where their methodologies have been used in practice to improve organisation effectiveness
