Praise for Marketing Model Alignment & Design:

“Your upfront emphasis on Marketing Model Alignment…aligning and balancing the business reasons and statistical reasons is refreshing…I believe many authors and colleagues frequently overemphasize the data-analytics technology (i.e., data science & engineering) processes at the expense of the need for alignment of business-marketing goals and analytics-modeling goals as the foundational context to achieving material incremental business, brand and customer value.”

Karl W. Lendenmann, President, DecisionTree Analytics & Services, North America

“I thought the section on Information Adequacy is very, very, relevant to the practitioners of everyday marketing analytics. This will be a great guideline book for the beginners and even for the advanced modelers.”

Gurkan Sener, Advanced Analytics Leader, Accenture

“I think the Information Adequacy section makes some really great points!”

Randy Bartlett, Author of “A Practitioner’s Guide to Business Analytics”, Blue Sigma Analytics

“Your book brings important and subtle marketing issues from the analytical subconscious into the intuitive forefront.”

Panagiotis (Panos) Ventikos, Owner, Delta Analytics

“Very practical and very real world”

Natalie Robb, Principal, Wavelength Analytics

“Really enjoyed the read.”

Chris Checco, Managing Director – Advanced Analytics & Monetization Solutions, Synchronoss Technologies
