Strategic Use of Analytics in Government

Tom Davenport and Sirkka Jarvenpaawrote an interesting report called Strategic Use of Analytics in Government, for the IBM Center for The Business of Government.

In the report, the authors explore several important applications of analytics in governmental agencies and attempt to develop an assessment framework for those that are yet to embark on the analytics journey or are still in the early stages of it.

The report focuses on analytics in the U.S. government, but some examples should be used in another countries.

I think this report shows the way to apply predictive analytics in the government, and also how can bring an enormous potential for the government make better decisions.

For those interested in Analytics, Tom Davenport also wrote an excellent book, with Jeanne Harris: Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning
