Read on to learn about her experience building a model that could save the company more than €1,000,000.00 a year!
This week we hosted a training in one of our most promising new topics: Bayesian Networks – a method which shows how different variables together cause an event to occur. The strengths of the method lie in the fact that it can estimate and show the dependencies between all variables in the model and that prior field knowledge by the research team can be formally included in the model.
Heineken chose to shift its Analytics Translator Training Program to an online version with the Virtual Training Method of GAIn®. This training method – consisting of a virtual classroom with break out rooms and individual assignments – made it possible for Heineken to continue with their learning plan despite COVID-19.
