No matter what we think of Big Data, it’s here to stay and the potential it has feels limitless. How will you embrace data and use it engineer real change?  What are you doing to think big about the type of data you have at your fingertips and then what to do with it?

Some data about “Big Data”:

·         90% of the World’s Data has been generated in the last 2 years (wow)

·         Big data is projected to grow into a $53.4 billion market by 2017, up from $10.2 billion last year

·         70% of the digital universe – 900 exabytes – is generated by users

·         80% of the World’s Data is stored by Enterprises

·         65% of Sr. Execs say management decisions are increasingly based on hard analytic information

The Impact of Big Data on Society:

Big Data, in the hands of some very smart people, has the power to help us solve so many of society’s big challenges. Never before have we had this amount of data to apply to problems such as the economy, healthcare, or the logistics surrounding national disasters.

The impact of Big Data in our everyday lives:
In the course of a day, your experience and even your behaviors are feeling the impact of Big Data. For example, check your Facebook feed. You’ll notice 2 things immediately: It feels like you only see the same people’s posts and the ads on the right are related to things you might be interested in. Both of these experiences are the result of Facebook using Big Data applied to algorithms and recommendation engines to serve up what it ‘thinks’

Bottom line: algorithms and recommendation engines are EVERYWHERE and will only to continue to grow in importance and impact they have on our daily lives.

How Big Data will change talent strategy 

  • We will use data science to identify the right people (inside and outside the organization)
  • We will be able to hire for cultural fit and talent potential
  • We will engineer better outcomes
  • We will be able to keep and grow them

In today’s knowledge economy we’re paid to think, and we need to find ways to be more strategic about it. Science is discovering more and more each day about how the brain functions.  Even though researchers will agree that they’ve made important discoveries over the past fifteen years, much about the brain still remains a mystery.  What we do know is very interesting because it gives us a peak into the connection between our wiring and our performance.  This awareness gives us clues about how to become better leaders for our teams, our organizations and ourselves.

What part of this new information is most relevant to the workplace?  And, how can we practically apply these new discoveries to impact talent engagement and the bottom line?  To answer these questions and more, we’ll explore the neuroscience behind change and how brain-friendly concepts are currently being applied in several organizations.  We’ll talk about how its changed organizational cultures, helped to align teams, fostered individual growth and become part of these organizations’ best practices.

Participants will:

1.  Explore the behavioral neuroscience behind change;

2.  Examine the relationship between thoughts, actions and perceptions of others;

3.  Learn how brain-friendly practices can be applied in the workplace;

4.  Practice these methods with a case study; and,

5.  Leave with 3 takeaways to apply at work.
