The demand for Grasstops Analytics

Leveraging grasstops (i.e. group leaders) is imperative given their highly influential position with other group members. If a grasstop can be prevented from terminating legislative (i.e. policy oriented) support, the legislative termination rate for the group members has a higher likelihood for reduction. Alternatively, attempting to get a grasstop from a competing policy issue to switch or terminate may increase likelihood of similar results with group members associated with that…

Financial Restructuring Analytics

Oftentimes a distressed firm considering a uplift plan will not be successful without some type of financial restructuring, and sometimes the best way to recover a distressed firm’s existing value is through liquidation. Clearly, many analytics professionals are analytics-driven experts that must be capable of determining the financial state of a firm. If the core business has been irreparably damaged and the future outlook is bleak then the analytics will confirm. Under the worst case,…

Interim & Crisis Analytics-driven Management

The leadership analytics style needed for a distressed company is very different from that needed for a healthy firm. The focus for a healthy firm should be on achieving the firm’s objectives while the focus for a distressed company is recovery, timely action, and problem resolution. Senior management’s authority in a healthy firm is one of delegation, while in a crisis situation the executives need to get directly involved. And the decision-making skills of a healthy company executive are…

IBM Wilhelmina Challenge

IBM Wilhelmina (willing to protect) is a challenge to IBMers from Street Learnsters - individuals committed to improving learning capacity using all methodologies regardless of prior shortcomings. The challenge is not to create Wilhelmina but to continue the efforts that emphasize the presence of a attitude and commitment willing to protect everyone. Naturally, a bold declaration will have to compliment what IBM currently do today and what the Smarter Planet initiative will require tomorrow.…

With vast amount of data that currently available, who should be able to predict the future the most? Should it be Google? Facebook? Twitter? Google claim to be able to predict the flu epidemic in the future, and other things. Is it because Google has the biggest data in this world? Or it is not?
