Jenny Dearborn – SAP’s chief learning officer and senior vice president – and co-author David Swanson – a former HR executive vice president for SAP SuccessFactors – present a sequel to Dearborn’s successful sales-oriented book, Data Driven. Here, the authors focus on implementing data analytics within HR. They continue the saga of the fictitious Anna as she takes on the role of chief HR officer at her parent company. Anna applies data analytics from an HR perspective to discover and solve corporate problems. She encounters challenges and shares insights, lists, graphics and key performance indicators. This convincing, efficient, well-told tale could change the mind of even the most fervent opponent about the value of data analytics for HR and at the corporate level. getAbstract recommends this accessible, entertaining and thought-provoking narrative to anyone working in HR, data analytics, corporate leadership or change management and to students seeking a greater understanding of data analytics.
