Management consultant, educator to lead analytics workshop

Patrick Noonan

Patrick S. Noonan

Dr. Patrick Noonan will lead a two-day workshop, “Essential Practice Skills for High-Impact Analytics Projects,” on Sept. 26-27 at the Executive Conference Center in Arlington, Va., where he will introduce a set of tools and techniques to helps analytics professionals apply their skills to achieve high impact in the workplace. Presented by INFORMS, the workshop is part of the Institute’s “essential skills” continuing education program.

At the workshop, Noonan, a former management consultant, business owner and educator, will teach practical frameworks and systematic processes for addressing complex, real-world problems and how to facilitate effective action. Noonan combines a hands-on teaching and learning approach honed from faculty posts at Harvard, Duke and most recently Emory University, with real-world experience from a business career spent at global management consulting giant McKinsey & Co, as well as Planning Technologies Group, which he co-founded in 1990.

“Whether or not one directly handles data or models, they’ve become part of the nervous system of our society, and integral parts of the business models of most organizations we interact with,” Noonan says. “Some of the tools and techniques are obscured to us, but they’re there.”

Seats are limited, so register now at www.informs.org/continuinged. For more information, contact Bill Griffin at bgriffin@informs.org.
