Welcome after a gap, yes I was busy with just collecting some detailed info on analytics practices in Indian companies.
I found following listed 'common wrong practices' made by several companies who say they offer analytic services.
1) Engagement of Non Analytical background person as a Manger or Head for analytical team:
a) This first creates a confusion of where exactly the analytics practice comes into picture as a part of Business solutions when proposed to the clients.
b) Mainly in the nature of the work to be offered or proposed, most non analytical background person does get confuse and most of the times offer the work related to data warehousing or management related.
2) One thing all the companies or managers should note that analytics starts with data not with data management.
Others common wrong practices will continued in next posts.
