People Analytics: an answer to the talent management crisis

Selecting, training and retaining the right person for the right position has always been crucial for business success. But in the current fast-paced globalised economy, today’s leaders also need to tackle these talent challenges on an unprecedented scale. Evolution in the job market now requires HR departments to upskill in the provision of quantifiable and science-driven answers to talent questions, therefore it is unsurprising that many consulting firms have started to offer People Analytics services. However, these providers have yet to professionalise this multi-disciplinary function from a time-based add-on to a genuinely value-driven service that combines the expertise of psychometricians and data scientists to solve strategic business challenges. The University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre and Institution for a Global Society (IGS) have partnered to deliver strategy and analytics seminars that provide a deep insight on these issues. Read more about the content below and equip yourself or your team with the skills and mindset necessary to thrive in this exciting and emerging field.


What you will learn about People Analytics

   In our Cambridge Psychometrics Centre x IGS strategy and analytics seminars, you will develop the strategic outlook and practical skills needed to succeed in the establishment, management or optimisation of a People Analytics function within your business. The seminars will combine case studies and exercises with academic material to show how this function can flourish within an organisation and they have been designed to address the major concerns facing both HR executives and analysts. You do not need to be a strategic leader, psychometrician or data scientist to participate fully in the training, since we will provide you with everything you need to start your journey into people analytics.


  Peter Romero from the Cambridge Psychometrics Centre will teach these seminars with a balanced focus on machine learning, psychometrics, and corporate strategy. The structured content will cover a wide range of relevant topics, including how to find and keep the right talent for these functions, how to align the functional set-up with the overall corporate strategy, how to choose the right talent challenge for beacon projects, and how to navigate these projects in a way that generates general buy-in and quantifiable people data for decision-making. You will learn to assess and diagnose professional maturity in this area, to select the correct analytical tools, to evaluate the deployment of emerging technologies such as digital assistants and social networks. You will engage with the privacy-related and ethical aspects of the practice and find solutions that will succeed at a global scale if the organisation requires it.


Delegates who successfully complete the course will receive a certificate co-signed by the facilitators and organisers.

*The Strategy seminar will be hosted in English ONLY (Japanese materials are available).  
The Data Science/ Machine Learning seminar will be held in English with professional consecutive Japanese translation.


All participants who attend the seminar and also complete the Capstone project will receive an official attendance certificate signed by the facilitators. The certificate will be branded with the University of Cambridge Psychometrics Centre and Institution for a Global Society logos.

Although, I was very new to People Analytics, I was able to set a big picture of People Analytics, and understand some kind of details of various aspects through the seminar. 

Y. K.

I could understand the concept of People Analytics as a practical activity, such as the method to install People Analytics in an organization (failed case and project management).

The seminar provided the information which I was not aware of and helped me to plan for future business.
