Featured Expert: Alex Welch lives and breathes big data analytics. A self-taught voracious learner, Alex has built, restructured, and proven the need for data teams and an analytical culture across a variety of major companies, including the recent Expeditors International, OptionsHouse, and now E*Trade. He experience spans business communications, UX design, lean process improvements, statistical analysis and modeling.
Overview: Alex will talk through examples of how his team at E*Trade helps many diverse groups make data-based decisions. He’ll share experiences from the perspective of individual analysts to decision managers to non-technical teammates, and the importance of using data in simple (and complex) ways to truly optimize operational performance and business decisions.
What You’ll Take Away: An understanding of how, regardless of your experience or impact level within your organization, you can have an impact and make changes using data as your North Star. While focusing on creating a data-driven culture, this also pertains to many other aspects of business and your career.
Why It Matters: Data-driven decision making is everywhere and desired by nearly all employers.
