Question Title


The Big Data Analytics (BDA) industry currently generates AU$40B for providers, but a much smaller return when it comes to value to client organisations. Nobody can afford not to play the Big Data game, but as yet no-one seems to know how to win. This one-day workshop is all about resolving this contradiction.  

When identifying problems or opportunities inside organisations, we are often guilty of measuring what is easy to measure rather than what is important. There is a general assumption that the things we ought to measure – i.e. how engaged are staff? How resilient is the organisation? How likely is disruption of our industry? How much do our customers trust us? – aren’t measured because they can’t be readily measured.

This one-day masterclass builds on a fifteen-year programme of research designed to specifically create reliable, repeatable ways of measuring the previously unmeasurable. Now validated through a host of client engagements, the class provides participants with a series of measurement strategies and approaches to overcome the traditional problems associated with BDA – how do we distinguish between what people say and what they mean? How do we identify false or misleading data? How do we translate measurement into actionable insight? How do we solve the chicken-and-egg problem of not knowing what to measure because we don’t know what will be important in the emerging future?

The workshop will include real-world case study examples taken from within and around the mining sector, and a number of hands-on exercises allowing participants to see how the emerging BDA tools and strategies can be deployed within their operations.
