In the fast pace of globalised businesses, talent questions are key to strategy - getting the right person at the right place and time. Leaders need to have the means to quantify talent questions, and this demand (coupled with the growing availability of data) has resulted in many leading organisations creating People Analytics or Talent Analytics departments. Most major consultancies and emerging niche players have also begun offering People Analytics services.

However, there is as yet no industry standard regarding the operations of people analytics functions or the measurement of return that such projects can deliver. Most importantly, a measure of functional and professional maturity is missing - how should such a team be organised, what hard and soft skills do they require, and how does People Analytics interface with other aspects of organisational strategy.

We conducted research in this area over the course of several years in cooperation with top companies, and identified best practices over various industries. We run a series of seminars informed by this research, in which delegates can learn both the practical and strategical skills needed to help them create, manage or excel in their People Analytics function. Our 5-day academy courses gets into the detail of the data science techniques involved in working with HR Information Systems data, whereas the 2-day strategic focus session invites executives to engage with the main strategic issues in a structured manner.
