What a timely piece as I make a move into education as a pioneer for STEAM education in China whilst keeping my foot in consulting Wall St firms to pay the bills. What I'm finding here in China is a bit of a culture shock in that most schools have a singular focus on profitability when in fact they should focus on building the best school.

Predictive modelling as applied in insurance is about understanding risk (or propensity). Actuarial science is typically focused on trying to understand forward liability. Unless an insurance provider understands this and has the asset backing to cover the liability, then the scheme is no better than a pyramid selling ponzi scheme. The concept of forward liability is being applied more generally in the social sector. It can be thought of as an indicator of the lost opportunity caused by social services delivery failure. Reduction in this forward liability also delivers increased contribution to society. The term "Social Investment" has been coined and is becoming a focus of Governments as different as those of New Zealand and France.

Jeffrey, good coverage of the history and approaches. My experience in this field starting a little earlier than yours and rooted in operations research, is that people confuse using models to explain the past, and using models as input to processes that aim to change outcomes. A model that has had it's hubcaps polished till they are really shiny may not deliver in producing desired results when it is plugged into the decision / action process. Simulation plays an important part in my view. Many model development methodologies have overlooked this.
