Geoff Ables, C5 Insight Managing Partner, Presented ASQ Executive Briefing Webinar on Analytics and Data Mining

Geoff Ables, C5 Insight Managing Partner, presented ASQ’s webinar titled “Analytics: The Executive Briefing.” As data mining has evolved rapidly over the last 20 years, it’s now positioned among the highest priority initiatives according to CEO surveys. Organizations that fall behind are increasingly at risk of being disrupted by those that stay on top of emerging analytics technologies, but executives can find it difficult to wade through the jargon to understand the strategic implications. Ables shared a jargon-free overview of the 3 different categories of analytics, how global leaders are using each, and 5 principles for adopting analytics-driven processes. Attendees also learned about newly emerging analytics capabilities that are shaping the workplaces of the future.

Ables is the author of “The LUCK Principle: Business Results at the Intersection of People & Profit.” In the book he teaches how to harness the power of people, process, and technology to transform a business into a digital workplace that balances a people-first culture with bottom-line results. The book is available in both paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon at
