Workshop: Essential skills that make an impact

Patrick Noonan

Patrick S. Noonan

On the big data resource, Data Informed, John W. Foreman states, “You cannot accept problems as handed to you in the business environment. Engage with the people whose challenges you’re tackling to make sure you’re solving the right problem … Solve the correct, yet often misrepresented, problem.”

INFORMS’ “Essential Practice Skills for High-Impact Analytics Projects” workshop explores the concept of “structured problem-solving” and provides participants with practical frameworks to go from issue to action. It’s one of the many essential skills available at the two-day workshop to be held June 20-21 from 8:30 a.m-4:30 p.m. each day at the Goizueta Business School, Emory University, in Atlanta.

The workshop will be led by Dr. Patrick Noonan, former assistant dean and director of MBA programs at the Goizueta Business School.

Seating is limited. The fee is $1,299 for INFORMS members, $1,499 for non-members. Discounts available for multiple attendees from the same organization.
