Joint Economist Intelligence Unit and APT Report: 42% of Executives Are Data-Driven

June 5th, 2014 | Posted by Jatin Atre in Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Joint Economist Intelligence Unit and APT Report: 42% of Executives Are Data-Driven)

Gut feeling and intuition have always been key parts of executive decision-making. But, as data collection becomes easier and data analysis becomes faster, how should executives blend intuition with data analytics?

This morning, the Economist Intelligence Unit and APT released the findings of an authoritative study that analyzes how decision-making is changing across industries and geographies. Direct findings from the report include:

• 57% executives reanalyze the data if it contradicts their gut feeling
• 42% of executives are “data-driven”
• 45% of respondents who agree that their company is growing faster than the competition also say they can predict decision outcomes by analyzing tests and trials
• 19% say decision-makers are not held accountable in their organizations

APT & The Economist Release Joint Report About Decision-Making

June 2nd, 2014 | Posted by Jatin Atre in Financial Services - (Comments Off on APT & The Economist Release Joint Report About Decision-Making)

To “decide” can be interpreted as “picking one option and killing off all others.” In business, doing this right has large rewards, and getting it wrong has severe consequences. While executives have always made decisions, increasing amounts of data,  sophisticated consumers, rapidly evolving technology, and disruptive competitors, are fundamentally changing the art and science of decision-making.

APT partnered with the Economist Intelligence Unit to study how decision-making is rapidly evolving across various industries and geographies. The resulting report addresses tough and important questions, such as:

(1) How do executives blend intuition with data? Are companies allowing executives to trust intuition?

(2) How are executives using data in decision-making when the data is counter-intuitive to their beliefs?

(3) With so much data available, which data should executives consider? And, how should they best incorporate it in decision-making?

The report will be released on June 5th in London. Please email info[at]aptmail.com to be the first to get a complimentary copy of this actionable report written by the Economist Intelligence Unit.
