Solving mission critical challenges

Organizing our analytics teams must revolve around producing results that are applicable to solving a business problem. Basically, as Eric Stephens presented, we must have the right skill sets to not only produce but also deliver analytical results to create action. This takes both heavy quants as well as those that understand some of what the heavy quants do but also include an ability to translate both in framing the problem and communicating the result. So, make sure you have more that hardcore quants on your team, as understanding and managing the problem solving process is paramount to success!
