I enjoyed learning more about Dan's philosophies around the analytics delivery process and appreciate his focus on follow through. His ideas encourage taking things to the next level, stressing the importance of adoption of ideas as a way of validating their success. I also very much enjoyed hearing his wealth of anecdotes around how he's formulated these opinions—the story about the school bus schedule being my favorite. I think anyone working with analytics could benefit from understanding Dan's outlook.
