Essential practice skills workshop scheduled for Washington, D.C.

Patrick-Noonan

Patrick Noonan

Patrick Noonan, a former management consultant, business owner and college professor, will lead a two-day workshop in the Washington, D.C., area as part of INFORMS’ Professional Development and Continuing Education program. The workshop, entitled, “Essential Practice Skills for High-Impact Analytics Projects,” will be held Sept. 19-20 at the AMA Washington D.C. Area Executive Conference Center in Arlington, Va.

In the workshop, Noonan will combine a hands-on teaching and learning approach honed from his faculty positions at Harvard, Duke and most recently Emory University, with real-world experience from his business career starting at global management consulting giant McKinsey & Co. By the end of the course, participants will: 1) Learn to link their subject-matter expertise to the challenges of messy, unstructured problems, organizational noise and non-technical decision-makers; and 2) Understand best-practice techniques, including: problem statement summaries, issue trees, interview guides, work plans, sensitivity analysis, stress-testing recommendations, the “Pyramid Principle” of story logic, story-boarding, slide-craft, delivering presentations and fielding Q&A.

Participants in the workshop will learn and hone the skills they need to turn analytical insights into organizational actions that drive innovation, growth and efficiency. Past participants have come from a wide variety of industries, including manufacturing, healthcare, finance, transportation and many more, and have ranged from CFOs and data scientists to research analysts, business intelligence professionals, academic program directors.
