    Vos articles sont intéressants, l'information et son partage sont indispensables à nos sociétés, le flux doit toujours être plus rapide avec plus d'information, c'est un peu la guerre aux données, celui qui réussira a avoir l'info en premier, la traitée et la diffusée parfois au détriment de sa pertinence

    Excellent article, la production le stockage et le traitement de l'information sont des éléments importants à prendre en compte, comme vous le montrez l'information a besoin d'être stockée mais aussi diffusée! Avoir de l'information exclusive est devenu un but, un objectif pour qui souhaite produire l'information

    I have a penchant for talking about 21st Century thinking and analytics for me is a great example of this, so I really welcome the quality of these buzz's because it is so much easier and even fashionable to talk about social media or leadership or even happiness, when the nitty gritty of everyday processes are being informed by the very thinking elucidated here. It might be popular to say correlation is not causation but to really understand that saying is another matter entirely. I am bit by bit gaining a better handled how to think analytically and statistically through each buzz I read from Jeffrey Strickland.

    #2 Just wait @Catalina Serrano, you'll come to understand Analytics like you would never imagine after following Jeffrey for a while. I do analytics in my own career but not even close to the complexity of Jeffrey's work
    . I learned so much from his sharing of knowledge.

    First @Jeffrey Strickland, let me say that I am so happy to see you here on beBee! This is a community I believe you will truly thrive and having someone who so aptly explains analytics, statistics, and all the other mathematical magic that you perform is the ultimate 'honey pot' Now for the post:
    "Analytics is best performed by people who do not have presuppositions about the problem or the data". This statement is along the lines of what I truly believe is extremely important for analytics that serve the purpose for which they are developed. I've crossed industries in my own career and have found that my NOT knowing a lot about the company or industry at the start served as an advantage. The work I did focused primarily on data analysis and the processes that created the data so the most important question I asked was Why? It always uncovered some unusual and sometimes scary answers. Thank you Jeffrey! Welcome, welcome!

    #3 Thanks for the comments Oliver! It is indeed in the collaboration between minds in Finance but even more so outside of Finance that value is created. If functions operate in silos companies are losing out on significant value creation.

    @Anders Liu-Lindberg, I thoroughly agree with your point regarding @Adam Moore's comment. Sometimes on a project we require that different perspective to help certain aspects come to fruition. I learned early on that engaging with people from different schools of thought, disciplines and proffesional backgrounds can offer shed light on the potenial of a project that I was perhaps not proffesionally geared up to consider. Really interesting article and and a wonderful introduction to your buzzes. I look forward to reading more!

    #1 Thanks for the comment Adam! I think the key is to find a way for someone to collaborate with that creative mind and make sure the insights (s)he develops can be applied in a business.

    I don't know if the same happens but when there's a creative mind the person is more likely better to work alone, since groups will limit the creativity. Science and finance I guess is not as free and creative but I hope I make sense on what I'm trying to point out.
