Continuing on the Business Foundations Specialization on Coursera I have started to learn the basics on improving business processes. The basic overview on operations is how to increase productivity and deliver higher quality standards, most people see the focus on creating cost efficiencies but it also has a lot to do with the quality of service that is provided at every step of the customer experience. Key concepts include process analysis, bottlenecks, flows rates, and inventory levels, and more.
At 2,000+ software vendors (and rising fast), the marketing technology industry isn’t just dynamic. It’s completely out of control. Email technology is no exception: The plumbing required to make sure your customers get that coupon or white paper to their inbox on time is only growing in complexity. If you’re an email marketer at any level, you need to have a basic grasp of these categories. In one of the most data-driven studies on email marketing ever, VB Insight found nearly 80 percent of email marketers struggle with maintaining or growing their subscribers, among other core challenges.

The 2015 Advancing Analytics IAPA National Conference brought to us by ADMA was a data science focused one-day conference that delivered global ideas for driving business forward through data and analytics. Here are my "LOOSE" notes madly taken down while trying to take as much of the day in as possible. I also photographed as many of the slides as I could, see the gallery at the bottom of this post. Please excuse typos and half finished sentences, I wanted to get this up asap. (and up at all.. I know what its like!)
Would you like to learn how to get more done with less effort, eliminate wasteful activities? This book can show you how. In The 80/20 Principle, Richard Koch thoroughly examines Pareto’s Law – the observation that, in any given context, “a minority of causes, inputs, or effort usually leads to a majority of the results, outputs, or rewards.” This inherent nonlinearity is present in all aspects of life, and by paying attention to your efforts and results, you can identify major opportunities for improvement in every aspect of your life and business. In other words... for most events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. This number can change – sometimes it’s 70/30 and sometimes it’s 90/10. But whatever the ratio, the point is that a small number of causes have a disproportionately large effect on the outcome.
