Developments in data science provide a tremendous opportunity to enhance decision-making.

It's crucial that these initiatives go beyond just producing brand new insights from information but additionally to systematically improve individual human judgment in actual development contexts.

How can businesses better handle the method of transforming the possibility of information science to genuine development outcomes? Just how can organizations go beyond just generating brand new insights to changing actions - not only of their employees but communities and beneficiary as well?
