Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning by Thomas H. Davenport
The frontier of decision s that can be treated analytically is always moving forward. Analytical competition is almost always a story involving people and leadership. Most analytically sophisticated and successful businesses had four common key characteristics; analytics supported a strategic, distinctive capability; approach to and management of analytics was enterprise-wide; senior management was committed to the use of analytics; and company made a significant strategic bet on analytics-based competition.
Without a distinctive capability, you cannot be an analytical competitor- there is no clear process or activity for analytics to support. Widespread use of individual spreadsheets create multiple versions of the truth; most organizations seek only one. Without the push from the top — it is rare to find a firm making the cultural changes necessary to become an analytical competitor. Analytical competitors look beyond basic statistics: Changing business processes and employee behavior is always the most difficult and time consuming part of any major organizational change.
Characteristics that increase value of data include: Automated decision making organizations must address which decisions have to be made by people and which can be computerized. It takes 18 to 36 months of regularly working with data to start developing a steady stream of rich insights that can be translated into practice. To sustain a competitive advantage, analytics must be applied judiciously, executed well, and continually renewed.

With over a dozen pages dog eared this one will be on my shelf for the long haul. The competing on analytics stages model is by far my favorite part Impressive book.
The competing on analytics stages model is by far my favorite part of the book. The chart ranking companies from stage one "analytically impaired" to stage five "analytical competitor" with each of the stages in between is fantastic.
Not only does this book give great background on how companies like Harrah's and Marriott became more competitive by using evidence based decisions, it puts together a step by step plan to take your company to the next level. In my experience most companies struggle with analytics, and getting from stage 1 to stage five is very difficult.
While the background and stories are great, the real advantage of this book is the charts you can pull out and show to others so they can quickly understand why having an analytically competitive company is valuable. While this is probably over the head of most general business readers, it is solid gold for anyone in business intelligence or web analytics. Apr 03, Liam rated it it was amazing.
We found each of these attributes present in the companies that were most aggressively pursuing "Among the firms we studied, we found that the most analytically sophisticated and successful had four common key characteristics: We found each of these attributes present in the companies that were most aggressively pursuing analytical approaches to business.
As a result of what we learned about the companies we studied, we believe it is impractical for these advanced skills to be broadly distributed throughout the organization. Most organizations will need to have centralized groups that can perform more sophisticated analyses and set up detailed experiments, and we found them in most of the companies we interviewed.
