“The biggest benefit of the program for me was that it gave me a deeper understanding of how predictive models work and how they can be applied. Just as important, it allowed me to communicate what a predictive analysis means. For all the sophisticated modeling you can do, if you can’t explain the model to the business world, it won’t be implemented.”
