INTRODUCING A NEW ART
OF PROBLEM SOLVING
Mu Sigma has a singular purpose:
To instill in large enterprises a fundamentally new approach to decision making through data mining and machine learning consulting. It is designed to not just match today’s incredible pace of change, but to help firms capitalize on big data analytics. We call it a new Art of Problem Solving (AoPS™).
Establish a clarity of purpose with all stakeholders in the problem-solving process and chart a course toward realizing measurable outcomes and transformative change.
Manage and analyze the interactions between problems to achieve better quality solutions.
Define fuzzy business problems in a consistent, structured manner by asking the right questions.
Address descriptive, inquisitive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics in unison to drive better consumption by business stakeholders.
Establish a formal decision supply chain to ensure transparency from problem definition through insight generation and success measurement.
This isn’t another methodology. It’s the most important aspect of data science consulting, a system “a series of habits, artifacts, and software” each of which must be continuously sharpened, but also applied daily to your problem solving work.
If applied in your environment, this system provides the ‘mojo’ that your company needs to move beyond just mitigating the risks of change, toward taking advantage of those risks.
But what about your day job?
Adopting a new Art of Problem Solving doesn’t replace your day job of solving specific problems. Instead, the two share a symbiotic relationship, each feeding off one another to help your organization use business intelligence and analyticsto make better decisions.
A harmony between Art of Problem Solving and Solving Specific Problems helps transform Decision Science in organizations
