At McKinsey, we help many large public sector and private sector entities transform themselves into data-driven organizations. We have the privilege to help clients predict everything from hospital readmission likelihood to detecting mule accounts used by money launderers. But, often, the difference between step-change improvements in client performance and interesting analytical insights lies in ensuring meaningful change in everyday practices by the “front-line”. We have found that R is an effective tool for making change stick. It lets us unleash a design-thinking approach to build machine learning applications that are co-created with users. It supports us in building visualizations and stories that unravel the mysteries of black-box techniques. It also helps create technologies that turn interaction with advanced analytics output from an adversarial experience to the best part of a user’s day. During this session Aaron Horowitz, Analytics Expert, will walk through some lessons learned and offer tips in making adoption of analytics built in R easier for any organization.
