Beware Spurious Correlations - HBR

Beware Spurious Correlations - HBR | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it
Analytical sleight of hand can mislead managers.
Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Good insights from this HBR article on the dangers of seeing correlations in data graphs and charts.

 

Beware: "When we see lines sloping together, bars rising together, or points on a scatterplot clustering, the data practically begs us to assign a reason. We want to believe one exists."


However, it often is more of a "visual parlor trick to imply a relation."

Escaped from the HR Analytics lab

Escaped from the HR Analytics lab | HR Analytics and Big Data @ Work | Scoop.it

"Recently I was able to get hold of some really interesting graphs out of the HR Analytics Lab of a big multinational. I would like to share some of them with you."

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s insight:

Great stuff by top HR blogger Tom Haak sharing some nice 'real deal' visuals with us. Giving interesting insights into what's happening inside a company.

 

For instance, what do word clouds of e-mail tell us? And what are the movements of the CEO at HQ? And also cool, applying ECG’s and Polygraphs to people in the 'hot seat'.
