I love my job. No, I really do. Why? Because I have a burning ambition to make a difference to the world. I get up every day and strive to add value. I want to excite and inspire folk on what can be achieved with analytics. It’s a mindset thing – it really is. So where did mine come from? 20 years in the Police – personal experience and development that you can’t buy – you live it. Resilience, stoicism, adaptability, passion – all required to improve a service that faces both strategic and tactical adversity on an hourly basis.

And boy our public sector and healthcare colleagues around the world are facing a significant suite of challenges. Real term cuts combined with an increase in complex demand that pushes capacity and capability to the limit. It also shines a light on prioritisation and risk management – who and what do we focus on – can’t do everything right? It pushes an organisation into a reactive spin and many become stuck in a cycle of firefighting and stop the important proactive and preventative work. This is not sustainable. Public outcomes suffer, colleagues in the service suffer – improvement slows or stops.

However; history shows us that some of the greatest adversity may seem insurmountable, but the obstacles become a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. What stands in the way is the way. It is how we respond to obstacles is what defines us. Obstacles don’t inhibit success, they create it. A mindset thing.

So, I took that approach when I worked at Avon ad Somerset Police. I realised that data and analytics was the golden thread to improving a police force that was going backwards. However; it was not just the technology that was important – a juxtaposition of factors need to come together to make a successful transformation. You need to create a blueprint, a secret sauce that excites and disrupts traditional thinking. That is what I did. I am now going to share it.

    Analytics

    Big data zijn onmisbaar, het is de basis voor vrijwel elke beslissing binnen een modern bedrijf. Toch draait het uiteindelijk om het effectief analyseren van alle verzamelde data. Deze analyses tonen nog regelmatig heel verrassende resultaten. Pakt een onderneming de handschoen op om deze resultaten iets minder verrassend te maken, dan ontstaan er enorme businesskansen. Binnen het thema analytics zijn er diverse presentaties die inzicht geven in de mogelijkheden van analytics.
