Practical Business Analytics - Designing Marketing Campaigns Through Scientific Experimentation

M. Ohler on February 6th 2015 on www.bmgi.com.

If you believe "designed experiments" are not applicable to your area, then get inspired by this case study. A bank wants to bring to market their new prepaid card and is designing the marketing campaign. The case study also explores some of the statistical methods you will need to master. We also look at cultural aspects:
"Growth" is part of your operational strategy? - Then there's no way around conducting many experiments, or you are leaving huge potentials unaddressed. How do you create that culture of experimentation and learning in your organization? - Well, just listen in.

Maximizing Results: How To Make Accurate Improvement Estimates During Project Selection

M. Ohler on February 26th 2014(Webinar). On www.bmgi.org.

All too often, companies feel urged to drive cost reduction initiatives at the expense of performance improvement like a faster delivery, for example. The benefit of the latter is simply harder to assess financially. As a consequence, cost reduction is prioritized. This leaves many an opportunity un-addressed.
My webinar presents and explores methods that can also be introduced in your company to make accurate benefit estimates for performance improvement projects.

Creating an innovation infrastructure

M. Ohler, 18th of October 2013 (Webinar). On www.bmgi.org.

Reliable, planable, scalable and repeatable innovation is not just "luck. It is rather the result of a sound infrastructure". The "philosophers' stone" may not be found yet, but much can be said about what works and what does not. In our experience, it is crucial to:
- build an ambidextrous organization
- carefully set up the critical roles for innovation
- synchronize the important processes for innovation and to
- recognize, understand and steer the natural conflicts between daily operations, improvement and innovation.
Furthermore, a simple model allows to assess a company's current infrastructure and derive measures and actions from that analysis.

Time in - time out: make more out of your leadtime data

Michael Ohler on November 23rd 2011. Webinar. Available on www.BMGI.org.
German version: www.BMGI.de.

These data are omnipresent: "time in - time out". It is surprising that rarely companies fully use such data. Six views on them allow you to gain the most valuable insight, as will be argued in this webinar mainly based on case studies out of the logistics and airline industries.
