AnalyticsWeek Unconference Workforce Analytics Track Day (Recorded on March 28th 2014):
AnalyticsWeek Unconference Track day was designed with a Keynote and a panel discussion. The idea was to give a strategic outlook during the keynote and bridge it with more tactical use cases that will emerge from the discussion with the panel. Each day was narrated by a track lead, whose job was to keep the track in time and maximize the fun. Each panel moderator coordinated with the keynote speaker topic to keep the content bridge as intact as possible and at the same time maintain their ingenuity in crafting the panel as per their vision. All the panelist and keynote talents were carefully selected to suit the theme and they represent the industry leaders in their respective tracks.
