Big Data: How To Profit from Information Bombardment
Leading Strategy and Management Expert Nick Bontis announced a new speaking topic this week. Titled Big Data: How To Profit from Information Bombardment, Bontis helps organizations to leapfrog from information bombardment to harnessing its power!
Looking at how the accelerated power of supercomputing has reduced the cost of data collection to all-time lows, Bontis believes the time has come to match our ability to generate information with an ability to learn from it and use it to our competitive advantage. Mining Big Data and extracting its value is the next frontier for innovation, competition, and productivity. During his enlightening and action-packed presentation you will learn how to:
• cope with information bombardment;
• review world-class cases of “big data extraction for profit”;
• understand the power of predictive analytics;
• leverage data you and your organization collect already; and
• determine what leadership action you can take tomorrow.
Ranked among the Top 30 management gurus world-wide, Bontis is recognized by the former editor of Harvard Business Review and Fortune magazine as “a pioneer and one of the world’s real experts in intellectual capital,” and Maclean’s magazine rated him as one of “McMaster University’s most popular business professors for six years in a row!” He is also a 3M National Teaching Fellow, an exclusive honour only bestowed upon the top university professors in the country.
