The articles usually follow this trajectory:

  • Why aren’t organizations investing in analytics? First we bemoan the fact that so few organizations are investing in HR analytics: only 12% of organizations in the latest Sierra-Cedar HR systems survey adopted any form of Workforce optimization applications such as workforce analytics, workforce planning, or predictive analytics solutions, and this number hasn’t changed much in the last few years.
