Brown Bag - Using People Analytics to Accelerate Innovation

Techniques for Data-Driven R&D Talent Management

Join  Bill Pike, Director of the Computational and Statistical Analytics (CSA) Division, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, for an encore presenation of his highly rated breakout session from the Member Summit 2016. 

Explore a suite of data analysis methods and tools – including large graph analysis of internal collaboration networks, centrality measures to identify hidden influencers and bridge builders, and machine learning algorithms for predicting innovation performance – that have been used inside a research organization to gather, synthesize, and extract insight from large, complex, and heterogeneous data about the organization itself.  Discuss lessons learned in how these approaches should be implemented, what tools and software can assist, and how to assess the impact of these new methods.
