Despite popular belief, statistical models do not find mega-donors, reinvigorate pipelines, nor generate revenue.

By examining the building blocks of successful analytics projects, we will illustrate the fact that success is not measured by the use of sophisticated techniques, but rather by the ability to think about problems and coming up with data-driven solutions
