Decision Intelligence For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Decision intelligence is a new way of incorporating formulas from established sciences into a framework in a specific order to tether all subsequent actions to an intended result. By making the decision first and then selecting one's processes, tools, and data, the user is ensuring that the entire effort renders a predetermined business value. In short, decision intelligence flips the traditional data mining process so that the action dictates the data rather than the data recommends the action. This technique moves companies away from the previous data driven model to a decision driven model. The reasoning behind this approach is to stop high fail rates in AI and data driven projects by predetermining the outcome and working toward it rather than trying to milk value from a completed and cost-spent process.
