  • Wharton School Workshop: Probability models for customer based analysis - Customer base analysis seeks to use information on the history of customer purchase patterns to address forward-looking questions such as: (1) Which individuals are most likely to be active (or inactive) customers in a future period of time? (2) What will the aggregate and disaggregate purchase patterns look like for a group of customers in the future period? (3) What will be the “customer lifetime value” for a group of customers listed in the firm’s database? An increasingly large number of practitioners have been charged by senior management to obtain valid answers to these kinds of questions, but unfortunately their skills – and the set of commonly available commercial tools – are not well-suited for these important tasks.

    This two-day workshop aims to fill in these gaps by bringing sophisticated practitioners fully up to speed on the essential techniques that should underlie their customer-base forecasting activities. Our two main objectives are: (1) to overview the basics of using probability models for forecasting purposes in general, and (2) to use these “building blocks” in a series of focused models/examples that illustrate several state-of-the-art approaches towards customer-base analysis.
