Shaping the role of an Analytics Translator: A dive into AI's Proof of Value

Xomnia Raamstraat 7 · Amsterdam, NH

Description:

The role of an Analytics Translator (AT) arrived at Xomnia in 2018, and - as typical with any new life- was accompanied by some growing pains. In the process, we found out that there was no clear and shared view on what was expected of an Analytics Translator. Therefore, we worked on shaping the role by defining who we are (our skills), what we do (our offerings), and maybe even more importantly: What we are not and do not do. We captured this in Xomnia's AT Playbook.

The July edition of the Data & Drinks Meetup will be an interactive discussion between our ATs, who will share content from our AT playbook, and our attendees, who are encouraged to share their insights about how they give shape to the role of an AT. We will dive into the what & why of field experiments, and go over the three steps of an experimental design:

  1. Designing the experiment
  2. Conducting the experiment

Finally, we discuss how the results of the experiment can be communicated to your stakeholders, either by linking the effect you find to a business case, or explaining the effect in a business context (Click here to know more).
