Advanced Analytics For Decision Management (Moved from September 25th to September 30th)


Federal agencies tasked with maintaining the oversight that protects the economy, the environment and our citizens are faced with ongoing budgetary challenges and workforce changes. Administering regulatory inspections and audits is becoming increasingly complex and agencies are asked to manage this complexity with a limited inspection workforce. To meet these challenges agencies can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their procedures by leveraging tools and techniques related to the discipline of Decision Management.

The goal of Decision Management is to refine existing selection criteria for assigning actions and tasks. Decision Management includes advanced analytics that take a data driven approach to generate predictive models that automatically encapsulate the key factors related to compliance. This analytical prediction is calculated to complement industry guidelines that include policy and field experience. Decision Management ultimately delivers a recommendation and prioritization of specific actions and tasks related to your agencies mission.

In this seminar, we will elaborate with case studies for which models of this nature have been or could be utilized and we will walk through a step-by-step guide by which these recommendations are created.
