In an interview, Chuck Pettinger talked about workplace safety. He said predictive analytics is the practice of collecting raw data, often in very large quantities, and turning it into actionable information. Based on this information, inferences about future outcomes, or predictions, can be made. By predicting workplace injuries, they can be prevented from ever happening. He has been doing change management consulting for many years and the answer to this varies based on the culture. In the best cultures, simply providing actionable information is sufficient to elicit the desired change. In other cultures, it's all they can do to have senior-level leadership mention safety. In either case, however, they need to be more prescriptive with the information they provide their leadership team. To him, it's all about sustainability. Many change initiatives attempted by organizations fail to make a sustainability plan and declare victory too soon.
