VP Workforce Planning & Analytics, SAP SuccessFactors
The theme from the movie Fields of Dreams of “build it and they will come” does not apply to Workforce Analytics. Post-implementation services are critical if you have implemented an analytics software package. It’s perhaps a more critical topic to consider if you are planning to implement an analytics package.
During this session, Peter will share his findings from a recent global study he conducted on utilisation of WFA. In summarising his best practice findings, he will talk about structuring an analytics team and how you build maturity in moving from Reporting and Metrics to Predictive Analytics.
