Meet Guest Speaker David Swanson, HR Executive & Co-Author of The Data Driven Leader

Learn about the people-analytics revolution! Today’s keys to success include using data to drive measurable business outcomes and prepare the workforce to be important participants in the strategy and sustainability of an organization. David's presentation will provide a hands-on guide for designing data-driven people strategies that can act as catalysts for change and transformation. Not to be missed!


About David: David Swanson has more than thirty years of HR management experience. He was most recently Executive Vice President of HR for SAP SuccessFactors, partnering with the company’s sales organization to showcase how SAP is using SAP HR. Prior to that, he served as Chief HR Officer for SAP North America and global head of HR for SAP’s products and innovation organization, where he delivered the people strategy to drive business performance. Swanson recently published The Data Driven Leader, a book that presents a powerful approach to delivering measurable business impact through people analytics.

"The Data Driven Leader presents a clear, accessible guide to solving important leadership challenges through human resources-focused and other data analytics. This engaging book shows you how to transform the HR function and overall organizational effectiveness by using data to make decisions grounded in facts vs. opinions, identify root causes behind your company’s thorniest problems and move toward a winning, future-focused business strategy. Realistic and actionable, this book tells the story of a successful sales executive who, after leading an analytics-driven turnaround (in Data Driven, this book’s predecessor), faces a new turnaround challenge as chief human resources officer. Each chapter features insightful commentary and practical notes on the points the story raises, guiding you to put HR analytics into action in your organization.

HR and other leaders cannot afford to overlook the power and competitive advantages of data-driven decision-making and strategies. This book reflects the growing trend of CEOs choosing analytics-minded business leaders to head HR, at a time when workplaces everywhere face game-changing forces including automation, robotics and artificial intelligence. It is urgent that human resources leaders embrace analytics, not only to remain professionally relevant but also to help their organizations successfully navigate this digital transformation. HR professionals can and must:

-  Understand essential data science principles and corporate analytics models
-  Identify and execute effective data analytics initiatives
-  Boost HR and company productivity and performance with metrics that matter
-  Shape an analytics-centric culture that generates data driven leaders

Most organizations capture and report data, but data is useless without analysis that leads to action. The Data Driven Leader shows you how to use this tremendous asset to lead your organization higher."
