The authors of the April 2015 data and analytics research report by MIT Sloan Management Review and SAS share the findings and insights from their research into how companies hire and retain data and analytics talent.

In May 2015, co-authors Sam Ransbotham, David Kiron and Pamela Kirk Prentice presented the findings from MIT SMR's recent global data and analytics study, “The Talent Dividend,” in collaboration with SAS. The study found that the integration of analytics talent into the organization is key to analytics success. The webinar speakers discussed the components of a human resources plan for analytics talent, and gave guidance on how to implement that plan in your organization.

In this webinar, the speakers discuss when and how to seek analytics talent internally, why a focus on talent integration — not infusion — is so important, the merits of a buddy system and how to build an ability to consume analytical insights across the entire organization.
