With the market still in its infancy around data-driven decision making, a riskaverse approach tends to be taken towards data science which stifles innovative use cases from developing.

If an innovative testing and experimental environment can be fostered, data science can help the business predict outcomes and in-turn influence the bottom line through evidence backed decisions.

This session will see 3 leaders take 10 minutes each to run through how they are using innovative experimental methods with data modelling and data science to help the business drive informed prescriptive decision making with pre-outlined benefits to the business.

The floor will then open to the attendees to share their challenges around enabling this culture and have the leaders provide their take on potential solutions.
