About this paper
More than half of all standard reports generated aren't being used by anyone. Executives request way more information than they actually use in decision-making. Every decision a CEO makes is based on incomplete information – generally less than 10 percent of the data you'd see in a typical business school case study. That was the word from renowned futurist and author Thornton May, speaking in a SAS webcast in the Applying Business Analytics series. This paper summarizes the webcast, where he provided practical yet visionary advice for "framing the future and ending the data wars."
