With the excitement surrounding analytics many people have asked the questions, "Where do I start?" and "What tools are available?" This book is designed to answer those concerns. Where to start depends on where you are, where you want to go, how difficult the path to the future is and how you expect to get there. Too often, this initial scanning and assessment of all forces and factors is ignored, given too little attention or is a replay of the past. As a result future outcomes are at best, sub optimized or worst, embarrassing and costly failures that can even take someone's job.
